Stoke Player Set For Move To Ligue One Champions Monaco

Stoke Player Set For Move To Ligue One Champions Monaco

Stoke midfielder Giannelli Imbula appears to be closing on a switch to Monaco.

The 24-year old became the Potters' club record signing when he arrived from Porto for £18 million in 2014, but despite showing flashes of his quality, he's now set to leave the Bet365 Stadium after less than two seasons.

Torino, Nice and Galatasaray have all been linked with the central midfielder, but Imbula looks set to return to Ligue One with last season's title winners - with French newspaper L'Equipe, via Stoke Sentinel, reporting that he has agreed personal terms with Leonardo Jardim's side.

All that needs to be arranged now is for the two clubs to agree on a fee and Imbula will be on his way to the Champions League semi-finalists.

Stoke are said to be holding out for a fee somewhere between €15 million and €20 million - which equates to £13.5 million and £18 million.

Having started off impressively, scoring his first goal for the club against Bournemouth 12 days after joining in February 2016, his form dipped massively in his first full season and by the time 2017 rolled around, he did not start a league game - his last two appearances out of the 14 he made last term coming as a late substitute in draws against Manchester United and Manchester City respectively.

Even after featuring for Stoke in pre-season, incidentally playing against Monaco in a 4-2 defeat, he looked nailed on to move on and now looks set to do so in surprising fashion.

Should a deal be thrashed out, Imbula will become Monaco's ninth signing of the summer.
