Report: Liverpool, United and Chelsea consider £10m bid for Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with Stoke City’s Bojan Krkic.

According to a report in The Sun, Liverpool are monitoring Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic with the view of making a £10million offer during the January transfer window.

The Reds currently lie in ninth position in the Premier League table, five points short of Manchester United and a place in the top four.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been inconsistent of late, dominating sides but lacking the killer instinct in front of goal, with forwards Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings currently ruled out action with injury.

Despite Klopp hinting at little activity during January, his side could do with a major boost in the final third and the latest reports suggest Stoke City’s exciting forward Bojan Krkic could be their answer.

“Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are all tracking Stoke star Bojan. The Prem big-spenders are prepared to tempt Mark Hughes’ men with a £10million offer,” The Sun report.

Bojan has been in decent form for the Potters this season, scoring three goals in 11 Premier League starts while averaging 2.1 successful take-ons and 1.1 shots per match.

The former Barcelona player joined Stoke in the summer of 2014, marking a distinct change in mentality at the Britannia Stadium under progressive manager Mark Hughes.

Bojan has since been joined by fellow Champions League winners Ibrahim Afellay and Xherdan Shaqiri, players who Stoke supporters could have only dreamed of signing three or four years ago.

Liverpool have the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino who could be perceived as similar types of players, yet with so few goals between them, having alternatives could be helpful.

The report also lists United and Chelsea as fellow suitors, a mark of how well Bojan has performed.
