‘The way Wolves have handled this is a disgrace’ – Big transfer in advanced talks stage: The verdict

Published

on

Stoke City are now in advanced talks to secure a deal to sign Wolves striker Benik Afobe for £12m, just days after he signed a permanent deal at the Black Country side, according to Sky Sports.

Is this a good signing for the Potters? What are Wolves doing?

We discuss…

Jay Williams

£12m is a steep price for any player at Championship level but Stoke will not be short of cash given their parachute payments and likely sales of Xherdan Shaqiri, Jack Butland, Badou Ndiaye and more.

They need a striker with a proven track record in the Championship and Afobe has proven his goal scoring prowess at that level before. At the age of 25, he could be a sensible long-term investment.

Alfie Burns

It’s excellent for Stoke.

Afobe will spearhead their promotion push, should they get a deal over the line. You’d have to say Stoke would be favourites for the Championship title with Afobe in their side.

It will be some coup for Rowett, although you have to say the way Wolves have handled this is a disgrace.

Ben Barkworth

Afobe would be a good signing for Stoke because his form with Wolves this season showed how he can be a key player in a promotion push.

They need a prolific forward to lead the line and he can certainly do that.

George Dagless

I don’t get this one.

He’s a good striker and will probably score some goals at Championship level but it’s a lot of money really.

Wolves have done well here for sure.

Chris Gallagher

A great signing for Stoke.

They needed a proven striker and they are on the verge of getting one in Afobe.

It’s surprising how it’s come about from the Wolves end but Stoke are certainly benefitting. Afobe should guarantee around 20 goals if he plays the full season and could fire Gary Rowett’s men to promotion.
