Stoke City got off to the best possible start under new manager Paul Lambert, as fans enjoyed the weekend’s fantastic 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the Britannia.
Paul Lambert was gifted the opportunity to take over at Stoke City after the sacking of former manager Mark Hughes, in a job that would always be an uphill task for the predecessor.
With goals being hard to come by in Staffordshire, a striker has been the main aim for the Potters moving forward as ongoing speculation with one of their own has caused for desperate times. Indeed, former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch has been linked with a move away from the Potteries, as defending Premier League champions Chelsea look to pull off the shock signing.
So, for the many fans that thought that the veteran was too crucial to the club to be sold, you may want to look away now… As according to reports in the Independent, Paul Lambert has told Chelsea that although he is not for sale – a deal could yet materialise for the striker.
Subsequently, Lambert could be willing to sell the striker if a suitable replacement is lined up, despite holding talks with the striker last week. As it seems to be the case of if a right offer comes to the table, then his six years at the club will come to an end.
Indeed, it’s understood that the former Chelsea ball boy is keen on the switch to Stamford Bridge, a move that would likely see him end his footballing life in the English capital.
Peter Crouch seems to only have his eyes fixated on a move to the defending champions, with his departure now only being dependent on the right offer being received by the club.
A player who’s scored goals in every season he’s played for the Potters as one of their standout players, giving the fans at the Bet 365 Arena something to shout about everytime he enters the pitch.
Stoke fans… Correct decision by Lambert? Let us know your thoughts below!!!
