Stoke are being linked with another swoop on Barcelona, with winger Cristian Tello the reported target on this occasion.
Potters boss Mark Hughes has raided the Nou Camp on a number of occasions when bringing the likes of Ibrahim Afellay and Bojan to the Britannia Stadium.
It is a long-term injury to Afellay that has prompted Hughes to go in search of a new winger this summer, and reports claim that Tello is on his list of targets.
Tello burst on to the scene in a blaze of glory when Pep Guardiola was in charge at the Nou Camp, but things have gone a bit stale since then and he has spent the last two seasons out on loan.
Fiorentina took him last season and are keen on another deal, but Stoke want to bring him to the Premier League and are ready to make a move for his services.
Everton are also said to be in the hunt and will provide competition for his services.
