Stoke City interested in Diego Perotti, deal unlikely

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Stoke may want to bring Diego Perotti to the Potters on loan but the player is apparently only interested in playing for Boca Juniors.

Stoke City are reportedly interested in signing Argentine attacking midfielder Diego Perotti but all reports claim the player is only interested in moving to Boca Juniors.

The Potters appear to be hitting the same wall as Werder Bremen and AS Monaco who both reportedly tried to sign Perotti, only to have the player show no interest in joining either club. Perotti apparently only wants to return to Argentina and play for the club where he began his youth career.

Unless Sevilla gives in to Perotti's demands, he'll likely finish the season with Sevilla and potentially make a move in the summer.

Perotti joined Sevilla in 2007 from Club Deportivo Morón and spent two season playing on the Andalusian B team before joining he senior squad in 2009. He's since made 155 appearances, scoring 16 goals.
