Chris Wood, the striker from New Zealand, who currently plays for the Championship side Leeds United, has been in sensational form in the last term for his club. He has been in the limelight after he scored 27 goals throughout the last season and has attracted interests from a number of clubs from the Championship as well as the Premier League.

An array of clubs including the likes of Stoke City, Swansea City and Southampton have been looking to make a bid for the 25-year-old striker to strengthen their strike force for the next term. However, in the current situation, the Potters look to be the frontrunners to bring in the New Zealander into their team.

Stoke City faced disappointment in their last campaign in the Premier League, losing a number of matches throughout the last term, which threatened their very existence in the top tier. However, they made their way through the difficulties and finished the season in the 13th position.

The Potters have been looking forward to making amends for their mistakes in the next season and revamp their squad, adding some much needed firepower to their ranks. It has become much more crucial for the man in charge at the Bet365 Stadium to get someone who can spearhead their attack for the next term after losing their main man in the attacking front, Marko Arnautovic, after he joined fellow Premier League club West Ham United in the summer transfer market.

Chris Wood has been a force to reckon with for his opponents in the Championship, with his dazzling pace and eye-widening dribbling skills that enabled him to get past the rival defenders and launch shots on the goal. The 25-year old has been known for his physical strength that helps him to get the better of the opponents in his pursuit to score goals and keep his team in the advantage.

Though the Elland Road club is trying their level best to keep hold of their star striker for the forthcoming season as well, there is a good possibility for the player to make a move into the Premier League. The Potters have been looking forward to make a move for the New Zealand forward and it looks likely that they might be able to land him in the Bet365 Stadium this summer.

It is quite imperative for Stoke City to get some good players, as they look to power their way into the top eight of the Premier League in the next term, and Wood fits their bill perfectly.
