Britannia Stadium side want Bundesliga forward.

Stoke City scouts were in attendance to watch Monchengladbach defeat Schalke on the weekend though De Jong only came on as a late sub and has barely been used this season due to the former FC Twente man falling out with boss Lucien Favre.
Therefore it would appear likely that a decent offer for De Jong would be accepted by the Bundesliga side though one wonders how much Borussia Monchengladbach would demand for a player who cost £12.6m just over 18 months ago.
Luuk de Jong may well jump at the chance of a fresh challenge having failed to start a single Bundesliga fixture this season.
