It’s not been a particularly enjoyable summer for Stoke City fans thus far, perhaps epitomised best by Marko Arnautovic leaving the Bet365 Stadium for West Ham – a club the Potters should be competing with at a bare minimum next season.
But the signing of Kurt Zouma on loan has eased the tension somewhat and recent reports from Mirror Football suggest at least one more acquisition could take place before the summer transfer window slams shut.
