It's no secret that Stoke City are lacking fire power and, despite signing John Guidetti on loan earlier, Mark Hughes' side may continue to recruit in this transfer window. 

Before Sunday, the Potters had scored less than 20 goals in the first half of the Premier League season and their leading goalscorer is joint between midfielder Charlie Adam and striker Peter Crouch, who are both on six goals.

1. Carlton Cole

The former England strikers deal with West Ham expired yesterday and the 30-year-old has been the subject of interest from both Crystal Palace and QPR.

Tony Pulis tried to lure Cole to the Britannia Stadium numerous times under his reign, and although the striker won't have many years left at this stage of his career, Hughes could hijack any deal and bring him to Stoke on a free.
