Relegated Stoke City are eyeing a move for Benik Afobe just two days after he joined Wolves, according to reports.

New Premier League side Wolves took up their £12.5million option to make Afobe’s loan move from Bournemouth into a permanent transfer.

The Sun claims that Stoke are interested in the 25-year-old and Wolves will weigh up whether to sell him for an immediate profit.

The Potters appointed Gary Rowett as their new boss following their relegation to the Championship and their boss is keen to bring in some firepower.

The report understands that Afobe is his number one target despite Nuno Espirito Santo bringing him to Molineaux.

Afobe didn’t hit the back of the net in 17 Premier League apperances for Bournemouth in the first half of the season but he hit six goals in 16 matches in his loan spell at Wolves.

If they do sell Afobe to Stoke, The Sun claims that they are set to make a profit because of his market value.
