Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is said to be 'extremely keen' on Middlesbrough player Bernardo Espinosa.
That's according to sources at the Britannia Stadium, who say that the Stoke City manager will stop at nothing in his efforts to purchase the Colombian centre-back.
'He is a big admirer of Espinosa', remarked our source. 'The talk around here is that the club is planning to table a €3 million bid for him.'
Reports that the Colombian centre-back is looking to exit the Riverside Stadium have been doing the rounds over the past few weeks.
