Stoke City hopeful to sign Cameroonian Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has revealed that his club are close to signing Cameroonian forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on a free transfer.
Choupo-Moting, who has appeared in two World Cups for Cameroon, is a free agent after leaving Schalke 04 earlier this summer, and Stoke have emerged as the favourites for the 28-year-old over the last week.
Hughes has confirmed that Stoke are confident of signing the versatile attacker, although the Welshman has conceded that the deal could still fall through in the final moments.
“He’s a player we’ve got an interest in and it’s one of those we’re hopeful of getting over the line,” Hughes told the Stoke Sentinel.
“You can never say it’s done until it is. I’ve had experiences where clubs have just jumped in at the last moment when you’ve done all the work and they’re able to convince players. We’ll just hang fire until it’s actually official.”
Choupo-Moting scored three times in 30 appearances for Schalke 04 last season.
