A new era is upon Stoke City with Gary Rowett taking the reigns ahead of their Championship campaign.
Their ultimate goal will be to win promotion at the first time of asking and in order to achieve this, a strong transfer window is needed.
Many Stoke players have been linked with exits and Ramadan Sobhi has already departed, joining Premier League side Huddersfield Town on a permanent deal.
Many more like Xherdan Shaqiri, Jack Butland, Badou Ndiaye and Joe Allen could exit the bet365 Stadium before the start of next season.
But plenty are expected to come in as well because Stoke will have the parachute payments to splash on new signings, as well as any many received from transfer fees.
The Potters have already been busy, snapping up Oghenekaro Etebo and Benik Afobe to bolster their squad.
But Stoke should also look at shifting these two players and signing another two to continue their busy summer.
