Stoke are in the running to land American wonderkid Christian Pulisic.
The 17-year-old schemer signed for Borussia Dortmund in 2015 and made nine Bundesliga appearances last term, scoring twice.
However he could be allowed to leave the club on loan in search of more regular first-team football and Bild claim Stoke are one of three clubs in the hunt.
Red Bull Leipzig and CSKA Moscow are also hoping to land him but Stoke hope the Pennsylvania-born ace will prefer to head back to England, where he lived for a year as a kid.
As well as making the breakthrough for Dortmund, Pulisic has also become a regular at international level, playing six times for the USA already.
