Premier League side chasing deal for Stoke City man

Burnley are said to be interested in signing Stoke City striker Peter Crouch in this summer’s transfer window.

According to Stoke on Trent Live, Sean Dyche’s side are keen on a move for the 37-year-old veteran centre forward to add to their attacking options, in a deal worth around £500,000.

Crouch only started 14 games for the Potters last season, but made a further 17 appearances off the bench, scoring five goals and contributing with two assists.

Crouch, who signed for Stoke City in 2011, has enjoyed spells at number of English clubs, including Tottenham, QPR, Aston Villa, Southampton and Liverpool.

Burnley are hoping that the idea of Europa League football will be able to persuade the Premier League veteran to make the move to Turf Moor.

They drew the first leg of their Europa League tie with Aberdeen on Thursday and will expect to progress at Turf Moor in the second leg.

The tall striker has scored over 200 goals throughout his long career, with 45 of those at the Potters.

The Verdict

Having suffered relegation last season, the opportunity to play in the Premier League and the Europa League might be too much to turn down.

Despite his age, Crouch still has a natural ability to find the back of the net, and playing back up striker at Burnley might no longer be an issue.

Whether the move takes place or not, Stoke City will be looking to bounce straight back to England’s top flight this season, following their very disappointing campaign last year.

Thoughts, Stoke fans? Would you keep Crouch? Let us know in the comments below.
