As unlikely as it may sound, Stoke City are close to signing Jese Rodriguez from PSG on a season-long loan.
According to John Percy in the Telegraph, the former Real Madrid prodigy has undergone a medical with the Potters this morning, with an official announcement now imminent.

Jese left Madrid to join PSG in a £21million move last August but has failed to make even the most meagre of impacts since then, making just one solitary start for the Ligue 1 side.
Things got so bad for the 24-year-old that he was even linked with a loan to Middlesbrough back in January, but even that fell through after the first round of talks.
Fiorentina were also said to be keen on taking him on a year-long deal, but it looks like Stoke have flexed their Premier League finances to land their man.
Jese Rodriguez to Stoke is outstanding. A perfect meld of real world and PES 2021/22 Master League save file.

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Need we remind you that Jese is also an elite-tier reggaeton MC?
