Stoke City are expected to step up their search for a new striker in the coming days according to the report from Stoke Sentinel. The Potters had been in the market for a new striker since this summer’s transfer window started. The club has not been successful with its strikers over the past years since Ricardo Fuller scored 15 goals in the league over a decade.

The Potters have struggled to find a striker who finds the back of the net consistently over the past decade. Nick Powell was the highest goalscorer for Stoke City in the league last season with 12 goals and it was the best individual tally at the club since Fuller scored 15 league goals during the 2007/08 season. Fuller scored the same number of goals alongside Liam Lawrence.
