Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on standby.

The Sun says the Potters have offered £12 million for Tottenham striker Peter Crouch.

And Pulis will go for Cameron Jerome or Bendtner should he fail to land Crouch.

He is willing to offer £4m for Birmingham City striker Jerome, while a loan option or £8m move for Arsenal's Bendtner is possible.
