Potters look towards African striker

Stoke are this morning reportedly tracking Burkina Faso striker Moumouni Dagano. Dagano is currently a free agent after being released by Qatar side Al Khor at the end of the season after he scored 10 goals in 25 appearances.

The 28 year old is also attracting Gary Megson`s Bolton Wanderers as both they and Stoke are in need of a new striker.

Dagano started out at Ivorian side Stelle club d`Adjame but only made 1 appearance. After struggling to hold down a club as a teenager he eventually moved to Belgian side Germinal Beerschot, who many will remember being the club who we signed Carl Hoefkens from. There he scored 9 times in 25 games before moving to another Belgian side, Genk.

Here he enjoyed his most productive time in his career so far scoring an impressive 35 goals in 61 games during his 2 year spell. In 2003 he moved across the border to France to play for first division side Guingamp, during his 3 year tenure he scored 21 goals in 69 games.

Since then Dagano has played for both Fc Sochaux and Al Khor but struggled to make an impact on either.

The major worry for Stoke is that at only 28 years of age he has already represented 8 different clubs, a feat that mirrors that of Ade Akinbiyi.

Despite this Dagano has proven goal scoring records in both Belgium and France and at 6"1 he has the physicality needed to compete in the premier league. So although he might not stick around for more than a year or two, Dagano is a player with talent who might just suit Tony Pulis`s side.

I just can't see this one happening. Apart from the fact that he is available on a free, other strikers seem to offer so much more. Dindane would be my favourite. Decent striker with pace and power AND can also play on either wing - sounds like a classic TP player. He is in the last year of his contract and his club expect him to end up in England.
