EPL: Stoke can reach Europa League – Charlie Adam

Stoke City can make a genuine hit for European qualification with the likes of new signing Ibrahim Afellay and the imminent arrival of Xherdan Shaqiri , according to Charlie Adam .

Adam remains excited about the potential of the squad, with the expected club-record arrival of Shaqiri set to be Mark Hughes’s 10th signing since last season, and feels Europa League qualification is achievable.

“The ambition is to try to get into Europe,” Adam told reporters.

“That would be a massive achievement. Liverpool was only one game, there are 37 more to go. We want to get into Europe, we want to taste it and that would be a step forward for us.”
