Potters boss Mark Hughes, who watched Allen impress at Euro 2016, is keen to complete a deal with Liverpool, who are demanding £15m including add-ons for the ex-Swansea City star.

Swansea are also in the hunt for Allen and hope to re-sign the 26-year-old, but the Potters are in pole position – according to a report in The Mirror.

Hughes could unveil Allen alongside Sobhi if all goes to plan with the Egyptian’s protracted £3.5m transfer from Al Ahly also set to be finalised.

Stoke have seen off interest from Fiorentina to clinch a deal for the gifted 19-year-old winger, already a full international.
