Stoke rival Hull for Makukula

Stoke City are rivaling Hull for Benfica striker Ariza Makukula.

The Tigers are believed to have had the forward watched as he scored against Paris Saint-Germain in a pre-season match last week.

Reports have also credited Tony Pulis' Potters with an interest and a Benfica spokesman has confirmed they are looking at Makukula's situation.

"The decision about the future of Makukula corresponds to the coach," a Benfica spokesman told "But in reference to this we are managing some things."
