Stoke boss Hughes sets sights on new striker

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is aiming to sign a striker in January, having watched his five strikers score just two goals between them so far this season, writes The Daily Mail.

With the funds made available by Stoke chairman Peter Coates, a striker is priority for Hughes, as his side currently sit 16th in the Premier League.


Coates said: “It’s the one position where we need to strengthen but they’re not cheap and we haven’t been able to find one for one reason or another. Nobody is singled out but it will be Mark’s choice.”


Hughes hasn’t admitted he is searching for a goal-scorer, but is adamant he has enough squad players already – it’s new first teamers he could be after.


“I don’t need squad players, I’ve got plenty,’ he said.


“We want players who can come straight in.”


Jonathan Walters has scored just one goal in 13 Premier League appearances, while Kenwyne Jones has failed to score at all.


Peter Crouch has only scored one goal in seven appearances this season, with the former England striker netting just seven times in 34 appearances last campaign.


Hughes’ side face Cardiff City on Wednesday evening, with both teams currently level on points in the Premier League table.


The Potters were hammered 4-0 last time out at Goodison Park, but won 2-0 against Sunderland in their previous fixture at the Britannia.
