Stoke could be set to bid around £3 million for South Korean international Kim Bo-Kyung, according to reports in Asia.

The 21-year-old currently plays in Japan for Cerezo Osaka and has won 9 caps for his national side.

A tricky winger who can also play centrally, he’s been labelled as South Korea’s long-term replacement for Ji-Sung Park.

The Manchester United midfielder and Bolton’s Lee Chung-yong have enjoyed much success in England; whether that will be enough to persuade Pulis to bring Kim to the Britannia, and whether these reports hold any substance, remains to be seen!

Interesting though!

Meanwhile, according to the Daily Star, Stoke are tracking Motherwell’s winger Jamie Murphy, the 21-year-old is believed to be available for around £1 million.

  • That would be a good move. We need more youth and he’d be a perfect back up that we can mould to our way of thinking and playing. Not sure about Jamie Murphy though
