Stoke striker wanted by Turkish club
Stoke City striker Mame Diouf is being linked with a move abroad to Turkey.
Stoke-on-Trent Live says that according to media outlets in Turkey, the 31-year-old is wanted by Super Lig team Goztepe who are currently ninth in the Turkish top flight.
Diouf signed for the Potters back in 2014 andhas made over 130 appearances for the Staffordshire outfit.
Prior to that, he made a handful of appearances for Manchester United during a three-year spell at the Premier League side before joining Hannover 96 following loan spells at Molde and Blackburn Rovers.
The Senegalese striker joined Stoke for a free transfer and scored 12 goals in his first season at the club.
However, appearances and goals have since dwindled leaving his future at the club in doubt despite new boss Michael O’Neill opting to bring him back into the picture at Stoke.
He scored the winner and his first goal since April 2018 in Stoke’s 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic recently but according to reports he could still be on the move in January with his contract up at the end of the season.
Diouf is not the only Stoke player who has been linked with a move to Turkey. This month, it has emerged that Trabzonspor want to bring in Badou Ndiaye on loan for the rest of the season in January.
