Injury list hits Stoke City

The Premier League is reaching it’s final stages and all the clubs are giving it everything they got to finish the season on a high note but a fairly extensive injury list is preventing Stoke City from unleashing their best players which is a huge blow Mark Hughes as he has a big desire to conclude the campaign by securing as many points as possible but it will be harder to accomplish than initially expected.

Marc Muniesa, Marko Arnautovic, Glenn Whelan, Jack Butland, Jon Walters, Glen Johnson and Marc Wilson are all of the players who have recently been suffering with injury.

Stoke City’s recent streak of Premier League has seen the team of Mark Hughes losing against Liverpool, drawing with Swansea City and defeating Watford. It’s a fairly inconsistent string of results as they haven’t been able to snatch regular or persistent outcomes.

The summer transfer window opens on July and even though there still are over 2 months until that moment arrives, clubs are already getting ready for the potential players that they could sign and Stoke City has showed interest in securing the services of Lewis Cook of Leeds United.

Lewis Cook is a 19 year old midfielder that has managed to become a regular starter for Leeds United and the youngster has attracted the likes of Mark Hughes who is believed to be interested in adding Cook to his team.

Everton and Bournemouth released offers for Lewis Cook back in January but failed to sign him and now Stoke City are going to test their luck with an offer but Mark Hughes will have to splash out at least £10million in order to match the price tag of the young midfielder. According to the latest , Stoke are the clear favourites to sign him, with odds of 2/1 - though you can get better odds if you use a promo code at at to double your odds.

Mark Hughes is the head coach of a squad that is filled with senior players who have an age range of 27-35 but Hughes wants to add some younger performers in the team and considering that Lewis Cook is only 19 years old, he can bring energy and explosiveness into Stoke City.
