Wolverhampton Wanderers may reportedly sell Benik Afobe to Stoke City for a profit just days after signing him from Bournemouth in a £12.5m deal.

Benik Afobe is reportedly a transfer target for Stoke City, just two days after joining Wolverhampton Wanderers on a permanent deal.

Wolves took up the option to sign the 25-year-old from Bournemouth on a full-time basis after his impressive form on loan during the second half of 2017-18.

The Sun suggests that Afobe could be immediately sold on for a profit, however, with new Stoke boss Gary Rowett showing an interest in the £12.5m ace.

Rowett is said to be after some additional firepower to spearhead an instant return to the Premier League, with the Congo international now considered his number-one target.

Afobe scored six goals in 16 outings for Wolves during their promotion-winning campaign.
