Stoke City have reportedly placed a bid to sign Wouter Burger from FC Basel.

According to Dutch outlet 1908, the Potters placed a ‘million-dollar bid’, which is likely to be a figure of speech, for the transfer.

It’s not yet said whether Basel will accept Stoke City’s offer. In direct talks with the player, the English side have agreed to hand him a four-year contract.

As highlighted by 1908, Transfermarkt currently value him at €4.5m, so that’s something the Potters may have to aim at to convince the Swiss side of the sale.

Basel only spent €700k to sign Burger from Feyenoord in 2021. They saw him having a great development at the club, which took him to several youth squads with the Netherlands national team.

He’s one of the players who took the club to the Conference League semifinals, and that’s when he got more attention from European clubs.

This is the first time Stoke City are linked to the 22-year-old, and with them apparently acting fast for the signing, we should soon get to know whether Basel accepted the offer.
