Eredivisie

Bringing the Eredivisie’s top scorer to the Potteries could turn Stoke’s fortunes around

Fans of Stoke City will look to the season with renewed hope and optimism following a disappointing season in which their side finished in 13th place.

Potters fans are always great to have around the Transfer Tavern, with lighthearted banter inspiring laughter around the pub, before installing serious game faces when it comes to discussing their beloved club.

Our landlord found himself embroiled in one of these chats earlier, in which Stoke fans discussed who their latest striker should be following the expiration of Wilfried Bony’s unsuccessful loan spell in Staffordshire.

A number of names were bandied around, before our landlord slid the name Nicolai Jorgensen into the conversation, the Dutch Eredivisie’s top goalscorer.

The 6”3 Dane has been a revelation at Feyenoord since his move to the club last summer from Copenhagen, and his goals helped to fire his new side to their first title in 18 years.

The 26-year-old may feel he has achieved all he can in Holland after inspiring his new side to the Eredivisie crown, and it may be time for the player to try his hand in arguably Europe’s top league.

Stoke have failed to settle on a consistent number one striker in recent seasons, and Jorgensen could come to the club with the hope of securing the starting berth.

Big, strong, and a natural goalscorer, Jorgensen typifies a classic Stoke City forward, and would be an excellent addition to Mark Hughes’ squad this summer.

Thoughts, Stoke fans? Let us know below!
