Premier League outfit Stoke City are currently considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Jese Rodriguez, according to reports carried out by talkSPORT.
Stoke City endured a very disappointing end to the Premier League campaign last term and it was widely expected that the Potters would be significantly strengthening their squad this summer as a result of their poor form.
However, Stoke have surprisingly endured a pretty quiet time in the transfer window so far and have instead lost key players such as Marko Arnautovic, Jonathan Walters, Glenn Whelan and Phil Bardsley.
In terms of arrivals, Stoke have brought in the likes of Bruno Martins Indi, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Josh Tymon, Darren Fletcher and Kurt Zouma, and while it has to be said that all of the aforementioned players are good signings for the club, they perhaps have to do more in order to finish in the top four during the current campaign.
Stoke started off their season with a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday and it was clear to see during the clash that Mark Hughes’ men could do with a bit of firepower up front.
It is expected that Stoke will bring in a new striker to the Bet365 Stadium before the end of the summer transfer window and now in surprise reports from talkSPORT, claims are being made that the Potters are currently considering a swoop for PSG attacker Jese Rodriguez.
Rodriguez joined PSG from Real Madrid last summer but after struggling to earn regular minutes on the pitch for the Parisians, the Spanish international was sent out on loan to Las Palmas during the January transfer window.
With the arrival of Neymar to the Parc des Prince this summer, Rodriguez has fallen further down the pecking order at PSG and it is now widely believed that the 24-year-old will be leaving the French capital this summer, with a move back to Spain being touted.
However, it has now been claimed that Stoke are considering a swoop for Jese and it will be interesting to see if the Potters are able to lure the ex-Real Madrid man to the Bet365, in what would most certainly be a huge coup for the club.
