Stoke City preparing move for Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend

According to the football transfer rumours in British Media (The Sun), Stoke City are preparing move for Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend.

The England international has joined Crystal Palace from Newcastle United for a fee in the region of 15.5 million euros in July 2016. The 26-year-old has a valid contract with Crystal Palace until June 2021.

Since his arrival from Newcastle United, Andros Townsend has scored 3 goals and provided 7 assists in 40 games for Crystal Palace last season.

Andros Townsend has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 18 caps, before making his senior international debut in October 2013. As a member of England national football team, Andros Townsend has won 13 caps and has scored 3 goals.

Adding a winger remains Stoke City’s top priority this summer and Mark Hughes will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

Mark Hughes is a long term admirer of Andros Townsend and believes he can get the most out of the England international.

Stoke City are in the market for just a handful of statement signings this summer who can improve the first-team.

The right winger can also play as a left winger, offering Mark Hughes a different option should he change his formation at Stoke City.

According to the report in British Media, Stoke City are preparing a 17.5 million euros bid for Andros Townsend to replace Marko Arnautovic.

How strong that interest is and whether Stoke City will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
