Monaco approach Stoke for Imbula as French champions look for Bakayoko replacement

Date Posted,July 22, 2017

Monaco have approached Stoke about taking Giannelli Imbula off their hands.

The French club are seeking a replacement for Tiemoue Bakayoko who has joined Chelsea.

Midfielder Imbula cost the Potters more than £18million when he joined from Porto 17 months ago.

Stoke will hold out for their money back at least for the 24-year-old who has made just 23 appearances in almost one-and-a-half seasons.

The Potters are still trying to land Fabian Delph from Manchester City and Kurt Zouma from Chelsea as boss Mark Hughes reshapes his squad.

There will be money to spend after Stoke off-loaded Marko Arnautovic to West Ham for £24m in one of the surprise deals of the summer.

Hughes also had a £10m kitty given to him by the Coates family before the summer started.
