New Stoke City manager Nathan Jones is willing to listen to offers for playmaker Bojan, according to the Daily Mail.
Jones’ spell at the Bet365 Stadium has got off to a rocky start – with the only bright spot being the 2-1 win over Leeds – and the former Luton manager reportedly wants to reduce the club’s wage bill.
That means that Bojan – as well as fellow high earners Darren Fletcher and Peter Crouch – are apparently on the market before the transfer window closes on Thursday night.
Bojan hasn’t played since November but is a talented player who should flourish within the right system; as evidenced by the fact he was part of the Barcelona sides that won the Champions League in 2008-09 and 2010-11.
Leeds United are currently a little light on numbers – having thus far failed to make an outfield signing during the January window – and Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly wanted a new number ten since the start of the month.
They are seemingly content to shop in the Championship market – with a strong interest also in Daniel James – and Bojan could be an inspired swoop to add a sprinkle of stardust to their frontline.
Bojan can also play on both flanks and as a striker, and Leeds underlined their ambition and ability to pay big wages by bringing in another Champions League winner in the shape of Kiko Casilla – Bojan would be another flex of their muscles in the market.
