Wolfsburg hotshot Bas Dost is angling for a move away from the German side, with a switch to the Premier League looking ever more likely.

According to German newspaper BILD [via TMW], a quartet of EPL sides are keen on the Dutch striker and are looking to compete for his signature this summer.
Swansea City, Stoke City, Newcastle United and Southampton are those who have been linked to the forward, who would command a transfer fee of at least €10 million.
In March, Dost broke Claudio Pizarro’s record for efficiency, averaging a goal every 63 minutes in the top flight, after bagging 13 in 819 minutes.
The 25-year-old has continued his scoring form since then, and has managed 14 goals in just 14 Bundesliga starts so far this term, with a further two efforts in the Europa League.
Despite being a key figure in Wolfsburg’s successful campaign—the side are on course for a Champions League berth—the former Heerenveen hitman does not enjoy a good relationship with the club directors.
Which Premier League side will profit from the forward’s undisputed ability?
