The Wanderers are reportedly in the market for a right-back to compete with Matt Doherty.
Sensible January transfer target?
Bauer joined Stoke from Rubin Kazan in January 2018 for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph to be worth £4 million.
The Austria international is a very good right-back who can be a decent back-up to Doherty during the second half of the season.
Wolves will return to action on Monday evening when they take on Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.
The Wanderers are 11th in the league table at the moment with 29 points from 21 matches.
