The normally quiet Stoke fans in the Transfer Tavern have began to discuss the possibility of a big name coming to The Britannia next season.
That’s because reports in France have surfaced linking Stoke City with in-demand Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal.
The Algerian international’s contract has only got 1 year left and Foot01 has claimed that contract talks have been stalled over negotiations of a fee. I
It is being thought that his new contract would make him between the 15th and 20th highest paid player in the squad.
With the financial power of the Premier League next year this could mean that Premier League teams could be able to offer the winger a much more attractive deal if he was to join their club.
Furthermore, the Stoke Sentinel suggests that while the Potters are interested in Ghezzal, they know that they are one of many English sides interested in the talented 24-year old.
Liverpool and Arsenal are also understood to retain an interest, making him one of the hottest properties of the summer.
Stoke Fans… Would you sell Arnautovic for Ghezzal? Or is the Austrian to valuable?
