Stoke are reported to have joined the queue of clubs showing an interest in Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina.
Potters boss Mark Hughes is exploring a number of avenues as he looks to bolster his attacking ranks, and reports in Italy claim that Lemina is on his radar.
The midfielder joined Juve from Marseille on a season-long loan deal 12 months ago, and then signed on a permanent basis, penning a four-year contract with the Italian champions.
However, reports have suggested that Juventus are willing to cash in on the Gabon international this summer, with Stoke, Watford and Leicester City all in the hunt.
Lemina is tied to Juve until 2020 so the Italian giants will be asking for much more than the 9.5 million euros they paid Marseille when making the deal permanent.
The 22-year-old plays in central midfield and his arrival would cast even more doubt over the future of Charlie Adam, who is wanted by Burnley.
