Stoke fancy Rodallega
Stoke are ready to bid £8 million for Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega, according to The Daily Express.
The 25-year-old is Wigan's leading Premiership goalscorer of all time and has netted 19 goals in his last two seasons - a feat not gone unnoticed by Stoke.
The Express are reporting Pulis has turned his attentions to Rodallega after the collapsed transfer of Carlton Cole.
The Columbian international scored a terrific header at the Britannia Stadium on the final day of the season to save Wigan from the drop.
So, ANOTHER player is linked, he's the 'type' we should arguably going for, young(for our team), pacey, tricky and he clearly lacks no confidence in scoring goals.
The Potters currently have 26-year-old Kenwyne Jones and signing a player of Rodallega's age and ability to play alongside him would compliment the big man well, meaning we'd have a long term, quality strike-force.
However, I'm not sure if Pulis is 'turning his attentions' to Rodallega because of the faltering Cole deal, they both seem completely different players and there's nothing saying Cole won't join later on in the window.
I'd like to hear Wigan and Stoke fan's thoughts on this one! He does seem settled at the DW Stadium and if he were to move, would Stoke be an option or would he wait for a 'bigger' club? Of course, it's only speculation at this stage but it's a deal which doesn't seem completely improbable.
