Stoke City have enjoyed a positive season so far, and they are one of the many sides that will want to compete for promotion from the Championship.
As we know, the January window is crucial to those looking to go up, and it has been reported that the Potters could be put in a difficult position, as Rangers, Wolves and Burnley are looking to sign Tyrese Campbell.
The versatile forward has been outstanding for Michael O’Neill’s side, scoring six league goals and impressing with his overall game. Therefore, Stoke will be desperate to keep hold of him.
However, you can never rule anything out in football, and here we provide the latest on the situation.
What do we know so far?
Football Insider have confirmed the interest from the two Premier League teams, whilst they also revealed that Rangers have tracjed the 20-year-old for some time.
With January around the corner, it’s no surprise that these clubs are interested. In Burnley’s case, they need more firepower to try and stay up, with Wolves seeking a new number nine following Raul Jimenez’s fractured skull. As for Rangers, there are always doubts about Alfredo Morelos’ future.
So, interest is understandable, although you can’t imagine many at the bet365 are overly worried.
Hughes? Pulis? Who was the Stoke City manager when each of these 15 Potters moments happened?
Is it likely to happen?
You would have to say no.
Everyone connected to Stoke knows Campbell’s importance to the team, and the only focus is winning promotion. Clearly, selling him next month would harm those chances, so it surely can’t happen.
Plus, the player is getting regular minutes, which may not come at any of the three interested clubs, and he is tied down to a long-term deal.
You can never say never with 100% confidence, but it is going to take a stupendous offer for this to happen.
