Britannia Stadium side target Hannover ace.
Stoke City are reportedly tracking Hannover forward Mame Biram Diouf and will have been buoyed by speculation that the former Man United man has fallen out with his Bundesliga employers according to Tribalfootball.
The 26 year old Senegalese international is said to have angered new Hanover coach Tayfun Korkut by arriving late back to training with his German side following the recent winter break.
This may well leave Mark Hughes ready to make an offer for the powerful forward would be a very useful addition to boost the Potters attack.
Stoke City have managed just 19 goals in 20 Premier League fixtures and know that the addition of a proven forward could aid their push for a top half finish.
