Newly relegated Stoke City have got their eye on Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle this summer, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
The Magpies striker is reportedly free to leave the North East this summer, and new Potters manager Gary Rowett is now keen to bring him to Stoke in a move which would see him partner new signing Benik Afobe in attack.
The former Crystal Palace and Peterborough striker was a key man for Newcastle the season before last, but has fallen down the pecking order under manager Rafa Benitez, who is eyeing up moves for new players this summer as he looks to improve his Newcastle United squad.
Moving Gayle on will no doubt free up some squad space and funds for Benitez, and new Stoke gaffer Rowett is clearly an admirer of Gayle.
With Afobe and Gayle in attack, Stoke would surely have one of the best partnerships in the Championship in terms of goals and pace, and it is another example of the type of funds relegated clubs are able to spend should they need too to boost their promotion hopes.
Gayle has bagged just shy of 30 goals for Newcastle since making the move to the club back in 2016.
Stoke fans, what do you think to this? Would Gayle be a good signing? Let us know!
