According to the Daily Mail, Stoke City striker/winger Bojan Krkic wants to leave the club after becoming frustrated with a lack of chances in the first team.
After moving to the club after a stint at Barcelona, there’s no doubt that he’d have expected to have made more than just eight starts since February of 2015.
Bojan is said to be keen to move now, after Peter Crouch has seen a resurgence around the festive period. Crouch was a nuisance to former side Liverpool and then went on to score against Chelsea. This has further condemned Bojan, who has just never stamped his authority on the side like most assumed he would do.
The ball here is firmly in Stoke’s court as they have him tied down until 2020. However, the 26-year-old is eager to get first team action, so Mark Hughes will have to decide if he prefers to keep him or sell him on. The question is going to be how much is going to be offered for the no longer young Spaniard? They could find a club willing to spend a lot, but they also might have to let him go for very little.
January may prove to be a little too early for Bojan to end up moving. It would be wise for him to wait and see how the remainder of the season goes, and then try to make a move in the summer so he can fully bed into his new team.
