Yesterday we covered reports from Belgium that Stoke City have already contacted Engels’ agent to discuss a transfer to England.

The player has in recent seasons been linked with a move to the Premier League, with claims the Belgium U21 international would be open to a move to the English top flight.

However, Stoke City could face competition from Sampdoria, who’ve now registered their interest in Engels. Voetbal Niewus have reported on claims from the Italian media, which say the Serie A side are strong candidates to land the youngster.
