Stoke City are reportedly in 'advanced talks' to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Benik Afobe, less than a week since the player left Bournemouth for Molineux.

Stoke City have reportedly made progress in their attempts to sign Benik Afobe from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Last week, Wolves took up the option to sign Afobe on a permanent deal after the forward had enjoyed a successful loan period at Molineux during the second half of the season.

However, just 48 hours after making the switch, Afobe was linked with a surprise exit to Stoke and it now appears that the 25-year-old is closer to moving to the bet365 Stadium.

According to Sky Sports News, the two clubs are in advanced talks over a deal, which would see Wolves make a small profit on the money that they paid last week.

Stoke have just been relegated to the Championship but Afobe is a proven goalscorer at that level, with 28 goals being scored in his last 62 appearances at the second tier.

If a deal is completed, Wolves would again be left without a recognised number nine ahead of their return to the Premier League.
