With Stoke City relegated from the Premier League, it is quite apparent that a number of their first-team stars will be looking to jump ship this summer.
The Potters will have to play in the Championship until they wrest their way back into the Premier League. In such a situation, star players like Xherdan Shaqiri will be keen on securing an exit to avoid the drop with the rest of the team.
Shaqiri is a prolific player and can truly thrive in the right set-up. Granted, things have not exactly worked out in his favour at Stoke but he boasts of the potential that is needed in order to shine at the top-level. The Swiss international has 8 goals and 6 assists from 37 appearances in all competitions this season.
There will undoubtedly be interest from a slew of Premier League clubs to acquire his signature once the transfer window commences and if our fellow supporters on Twitter are to be taken into consideration, a good majority of them want to see him in a Spurs jersey next season. Here are some of the best tweets:
