A number of Stoke City supporters have been reacting to the latest reports from The Telegraph reporter John Percy that the Potters are closing in on a move for Mario Vrancic.
Vrancic is available on a free transfer this summer with his contract at Norwich City having come to an end and the Canaries decided to allow him to leave Carrow Road following their promotion back to the Premier League.
The midfielder managed to make 32 appearances for Norwich in the Championship last term and he weighed in with three goals and five assists in those matches. Although the 32-year-old saw his chances to start matches limited throughout the campaign and he only managed to make 19 starts in total.
The 32-year-old was also instrumental for Norwich as they secured promotion from the Championship during the 2018/19 season. He managed to register ten goals and provided seven assists in 36 appearances during that campaign.
Quiz: What was the score the last time Stoke City played each of these 25 teams?
According to Percy’s report, Stoke are set to seal the signing of Vrancic on Monday with the player having already completed his medical and he is set to be their third addition of the transfer window so far.
