During this transfer window, Stoke City has yet to find a player to reinforce the team's offense. So far, the club under Steve Schumacher has made three signings, all focused on the defensive area.

However, a potential solution may lie in Leicester City, which has a 21-year-old player who significantly contributed to their promotion to the Premier League last season.

Tom Cannon: Leicester City's Future Star

The player in question is forward Tom Cannon. At just 21, he continues to show significant promise in English football. The Irishman has had an important journey at Everton, where he excelled in the youth divisions before making his professional leap to Preston North End. During the 2022-23 season, he played 21 matches, scoring 8 goals and providing 1 assist.

Last season, Cannon played 16 matches with Leicester City, playing a crucial role in their promotion. In the EFL Championship, he participated in 3 games, scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist in just 423 minutes of play. For Stoke City, signing Cannon would be a great move, given his young age and impressive offensive abilities. He is a natural striker who guarantees goals and has a promising future ahead, making him a valuable addition for Steve Schumacher's squad.

However, there are no rumors yet about Cannon's future. He has a contract with Leicester City until June 2028, but Stoke City would greatly benefit from a forward like him. With the preseason matches approaching, Stoke City still hasn't found a forward to sign. The English market is highly competitive, with many teams vying for available players and decisions pending from players for sale or free agents.

The Potters need to find a solution quickly if they want to secure someone in the market to significantly contribute to the upcoming season.
