The acquisition of a new striker appears to have taken precedent for Tony Pulis on deadline day as Stoke reportedly chase a number of forwards.

Stoke have enjoyed a relatively quiet transfer window so far, with the Potters having only completed the free transfers of experienced defensive duo Jonathan Woodgate and Matthew Upson.

But the activity at the Britannia Stadium appears to be about to go up a notch as the transfer deadline edges ever closer.

On Tuesday, it is understood that Stoke had approached Chelsea with regards to the the loan signing of Belgian teenager Romelu Lukaku.

However, this proposed move soon hit the buffers after it emerged it would contravene Barclays Premier League rules.

Stoke have since, according to, turned their attention to wantaway Arsenal hitman Nicklas Bentdner, who is said to have held talks with the Potteries club today.


The Denmark international has made no secret of his desire to leave the Emirates Stadium in the pursuit of regular first team football, and is unlikely to be short of offers.

Meanwhile, Stoke are also reportedly chasing Tottenham's Peter Crouch, although the 31-year-old is also a target for Sunderland.

Stoke have, however, had an offer accepted for Birmingham's Cameron Jerome, who Pulis has been chasing for the majority of the summer.
