Stoke go for Arsenal, Everton target Bjorn Engels, Wimmer

Stoke City are eyeing Club Brugge defender Bjorn Engels.

The Sentinel says Stoke have already secured the return of Bruno Martins Indi from Porto in a £7m deal and signed Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan from Chelsea. Mark Hughes, who has made a three centre-half system his plan A, also hopes to secure an extended contract for captain Ryan Shawcross.

He has been linked with Tottenham's Kevin Wimmer, who has been landed with a £20m price tag, and now Engels, a 22-year-old former Belgium youth international.

Engels, a 6ft 4in stopper who has previously been of reported interest to Arsenal and Everton, has helped Brugge to two wins in his two league appearances so far this season – but could not help them get past Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.
