Stoke City in for Revs’ Juan Agudelo

Posted by

The Premier League side have used their preseason presence in America to contact the New England striker.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is said to be pursuing New England Revolution striker Juan Agudelo.

Stoke spent the last week of July on tour in the US, during which time Mark Hughes to have spoken with Agudelo over a possible move, according to ThisIsStaffordshire.co.uk.

Agudelo, only 20-years-old, already has more than sixty appearances for three different sides in MLS. A graduate of the New York Red Bull Academy, he has been in fantastic form so far in 2013, with two goals in four games for Chivas USA and three goals in five games for new club New England Revolution.

Should Agudelo make a move to the Potters he shouldn’t have much trouble adjusting, thanks to the presence of fellow USA internationals Maurice Edu, Brek Shea and Geoff Cameron.

Stoke look to be seeking a swift resolution to the transfer, which spells bad news for Revolution fans as Agudelo, despite only being at the club for a short period of time, has already established himself as both a fan favourite and a key offensive weapon.

Faint hope remains that Agudelo may resign with the Revolution if offered a Designated Player contract, but a lucrative offer from the Premier League may prove too much for both player and club to resist.
