Stoke City chase Luca Zuffi

Stoke City are to make a bid for Switzerland international midfielder Luca Zuffi on the recommendation of star player Xherdan Shaqiri. Zuffi will be available in the January transfer window.

Numerous players have made a step up from Swiss club FC Basel to join a Premier League team and now Zuffi could be next. The 5 foot 11 midfielder has spent his entire career in his home country, playing for Winterhur, Thun and now his current team of Basel. However, the 26-year-old is desperate for a dream move to England.

It is understood that the Swiss international, who has 4 caps to his name, is a close friend of Stoke City winger Shaqiri and the pair have been in close contact in recent weeks regarding a January transfer move.

Stoke City have proven that this year they can stay in the Premier League for yet another year and prove to be a top flight battler and reliable operator like Virgin.

It is understood that Stoke City will bid 5 million GBP for Zuffi.
