Stoke and Everton Go Head To Head For £5m-Rated Denmark Youngster

Young striker set for move to the Premier League.

Stoke and Everton are gearing up for a summer battle for the signature of FC Copenhagen youngster Andreas Cornelius, 20, according to The Daily Mail.

The two clubs are both known to be admirers of the player and look set to bring him to the Premier League once the transfer window re-opens.

Cornelius is expected to have a bright future in the game and recently netted his first international goal for Denmark against the Czech Republic.

Stoke are keen to bring in a new striker this summer after a paltry return this season of just twenty eight goals in 32 games.

To put that into context, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has scored twenty times this season.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis knows he is set to lose the retiring Michael Owen this summer and believes Cornelius is the ideal replacement for the former England star.

Everton are keen to bring in a new striker after David Moyes ran out of patience with the inconsistent Nikica Jelavic.

The Croatian striker arrived at the club in blistering form but has since failed to find any consistency and has recently found himself on the bench in favour of Victor Anichebe.

Copenhagen are thought to value Corenelius around the £5 million mark.
