Stoke City are keeping tabs on Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor as the 23-year-old defender is coming towards the end of his Leeds United contract, which expires in the summer.
Taylor has openly stated that he won’t be signing a new deal at Leeds, and that could sway Stoke to pursue him ahead of other targets that may have caught Mark Hughes’ eye, making him a more attractive prospect.
The Potters have also been linked with the likes of Luke Shaw, Andy Robertson and Josh Tymon as Erik Pieters has struggled somewhat this campaign.
Whilst Taylor was a mainstay in the Leeds United XI at the beginning of this campaign, he has struggled to get back into Garry Monk’s plans with the performance level shown by Italian defender Gaetano Berardi.
It could be a real snap for The Potters, should they land Taylor, as he was targeted by Liverpool and a whole host of Premier League clubs throughout last summer, and if they manage to land him on a free, it will enable Mark Hughes to spend the money elsewhere on an overhaul of the Stoke City squad.
