HITC Sport understands Stoke are in talks with Bournemouth goalkeeper Federici.
Stoke are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements with Lee Grant poised to join Manchester United and continued speculation surrounding the long-term future of England goalkeeper Jack Butland.
New Stoke boss Gary Rowett has lined up a deal for Australian international Federici, who is well down the pecking order at Bournemouth.
The 33-year-old is third-choice goalkeeper at Bournemouth behind Asmir Begovic and Artur Boruc and he is ready to move on in search of regular first-team football.
Federici joined Nottingham Forest on loan last summer, but saw the move cut short early after picking up a serious knee injury on international duty with Australia.
Federici was forced to return to Bournemouth to undergo knee surgery without even playing a game for Forest.
The talented shot-stopper began his career with Reading and made over 245 appearances for the Royals before joining Bournemouth on a free transfer in the summer of 2015.
