Stoke City should look to Stamford Bridge again to sign this attacker

The Stoke City fans down in the Football Transfer Tavern have been slating Mark Hughes’ summer business.

They claim that the Welshman is simply not doing enough to rectify the Potters’ attacking threat.

Stoke only registered 41 goals in the Premier League last season, with only two sides outside the bottom three scoring less.

With Peter Crouch showing his age, Jonathan Walters already departing for Burnley and Mame Biram Diouf not firing, the Potters are crying out for reinforcements.

Yet, Hughes’ side are being linked with the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Manchester City outcast Samir Nasri – neither of which are goal-getters.

One striker who is available for auction this summer is Chelsea’s Loic Remy.

He still has 12 months to run on his contract but seemingly does not feature in Antonio Conte’s plans, and is keen to move on.

Despite the 30-year-old falling off the radar since his move to Stamford Bridge, Remy has proven to have the talent to be a regular goalscorer.

The Frenchman impressed for Queens Park Rangers and was a huge success during his spell at Newcastle.

The hitman endured a difficult loan spell at Crystal Palace last season, a series of injury set backs restrained him from regular game time for the Eagles.

However, the player who is fit and raring to go now represents a great option for mid-table teams.

Mark Hughes should capitalise on the Blues’ willingness to part with the striker.

Do you think Remy can still cut it in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments!
