Olic was unable to break his goalless drought during Saturday's loss to Bayern Munich, as he's now gone seven appearances without a goal.

Olic last scored Nov. 22 against Schalke while still with Wolfsburg, and he's gone four straight with Hamburg without a strike. He's getting the starts at least, so playing-time wise, he could break through soon enough.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olic scored in the 52nd minute of VfL Wolfsburg's 2-1 loss to Bayern Munich in their Bundesliga opener on Friday.

Wolfsburg were already down 2-0 after 47 minutes, so while Olic's goal got them closer, no starter took more than one shot. Olic netted 14 times in 28 league games last season, so Friday's score is hardly his last.

Olic has admitted that joining Stoke City is his preferred move this summer, Sky Sports reports.

Olic currently plays for German club Wolfsburg, but is out of contract at the end of this season. After having a transfer to Stoke City rejected by Wolfsburg during January, Olic will be able to join the Potters as a free agent this summer. In 22 Bundesliga appearances this season, the 34-year-old has tallied eight goals and three assists.

Olic has seen a transfer to the Premiership's Stoke City rejected, ESPN FC reports.

Olic currently leads Wolfsburg with seven goals through 17 starts this season, but since his contract with the Bundesliga side is set to expire at season's end, Stoke City was keen to submit a cut-price bid. However, with Wolfsburg intent on keeping its experienced striker, it appears the Potters will be forced to look elsewhere to boost their struggling attack.

Olic scored in the 69th minute of Saturday's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund.

The goal was Olic's sixth in league play this year and second in his last three games. He is already well on his way to matching and ultimately passing the nine goals he scored in 28 appearances last season for Wolfsburg.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olic (thigh) has been ruled out of Euro 2012, SkySports reports.

It has just been injury after injury for Olic, and there was outside hope he'd be ready. Croatia is talented, but not deep. Losing a player like Olic and replacing him with Nikola Kalinic, a player who could barely get time with Blackburn, indicates just how far the fall-off is.
