Stoke City are on the brink of signing Benfica striker Nicolas Oliveira.

A Bola says the Potters are prepared to shell out £950,000 to capture the 21-year-old Benfica striker on a 12 month loan.

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus is keen to let him go out and taste regular football in the Premier League.

Stoke face late competition from Rennes for Oliveira this week.
