Stoke City reportedly want Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Benik Afobe.

Don Goodman has suggested to The Express & Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers should not sell Benik Afobe in the summer transfer window amid reported interest from Stoke City.

According to The Express & Star, Championship side Stoke City are interested in signing Afobe from Premier League outfit Wolves this summer.

It has been reported that the former Arsenal prospect will move to the Potters in a £12 million deal, with the Wanderers claimed to have paid Bournemouth £10m for the striker to sign him on a permanent contract from the Cherries earlier this summer.

Former Wolves striker Goodman has suggested that Wolves should retain the services of the 25-year-old DR Congo international.

Goodman told The Express & Star about Afobe: “Wolves can maybe say they can make some more money but he finished the season very well and looks like he’s found a home again, because he was first class last time around.”

“I definitely think he deserves a chance,” added Goodman. “But at the same time Benik wouldn’t want to come to Wolves and play the same role he played at Bournemouth; which was coming off the bench occasionally and being a fringe player.”

Too late?

With The Express & Star reporting that Afobe has agreed personal terms with Wolves and the deal to announced imminently, it does look like the striker is leaving the Wanderers for Stoke.

The striker did well during his time at Wolves in his two spells at the Molineux Stadium, but the former Arsenal prospect has not made a huge impact in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Millwall are in talks with Wolves over the transfer of Ben Marshall in the summer transfer window, according to Sky Sports.
