Stoke boss Mark Hughes is being linked with a raid on one of his former clubs, Blackburn, to sign left-back Martin Olsson.
The Potters have admitted signing a new left-back is a priority and Tottenham's Danny Rose along with Holland international Erik Pieters have already been linked with a move to the Britannia Stadium.
Now Rovers defender Olsson is also said to be on his wanted list with a view to a £3million bid for the Swedish star.
Hughes signed Olsson from Hogaborgs in 2006 and reports claim he is keen to be re-united with the player at the Britannia Stadium.
Norwich City are also said to be keen on Olsson, although Rovers have denied reports that they have received a bid from the Canaries, and Hughes remains favourite to do a deal.
Meanwhile, Stoke continue to be linked with a move for winger David Bentley who is available on a free transfer after falling out of contract at Tottenham.
Again, Hughes worked with Bentley at Blackburn and is ready to give him the chance to get his career back on track at Stoke.
