Given the club's current situation, youth is an essential factor. Stoke City wants to find players who fit well into the squad and can positively contribute to the club's primary objective of returning to the Premier League, as in the old days.

For Stoke City, it's the perfect time to look for players who have experience in England and are familiar with the EFL Championship, League One, or the Premier League. They aim to acquire a player with these characteristics, who arrives hungry for victory and can add value in the 24/25 season.

Stoke City Eyes Karamoko Dembele

Karamoko Dembele began his career in Scotland, where despite not securing a regular place at Celtic FC, he managed to become a champion in the 19/20 and 20/21 seasons. Although he played no more than three matches in each season, being registered with the team allowed him to receive the championship trophies, adding to his achievements in the Scottish league.

This time, the focus is on the 21-year-old English player, who had a very positive spell in England's third division with Blackpool. There, he managed to stand out significantly with his work as an attacking midfielder or even as a right winger.

His contribution to Blackpool's attack left many teams interested in Karamoko Dembele. In the 23/24 season, he played 47 matches, participating in League One, the FA Cup, and the EFL Trophy. In League One, his performance was quite positive, scoring 8 goals and providing 13 assists in 2,643 minutes played in the third division.

The impact this player could bring to Stoke City is impressive, but he is not the only club following him. Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth, Wigan Athletic, Charlton Athletic, and Queens Park Rangers are also interested in the 21-year-old English prospect.

Nonetheless, Stoke City continues to move in the market, and their interest in an offensive player is undeniable. More rumors about The Potters in the transfer market will be revealed soon.
