Andreas Cornelius: Striker understood to be on Stoke's wanted list

The FC Copenhagen striker is the leading scorer in the Danish Superleague, having scored 17 goals in his first season as a regular.

The 20-year-old, who is 6'4", has also transferred his club form to the international stage, scoring on his debut for Denmark last month.

Sorensen told sporten.dk: "There is definitely interest for Cornelius from Stoke.

"This is not the first time that I have been consulted about Danish players and I've told them that he is a special talent and that he has done well in Denmark.

"I said that he would be worth a look and they have done that. Now it is up to the club to decide whether he is the right fit for them and to discover if he would be interested."

Tony Pulis, who was reportedly amongst the crowd as Copenhagen drew with Odense on Sunday, may face competition from Arsenal for the striker's signature, but Sorensen hopes Stoke will be an attractive option for the youngster.

The goalkeeper continued: "As a young player it is important to play every game and I'm sure Cornelius will factor that into his final decision.

"He does have the right build for Premier League football and I sense that he has the right attitude. Only time will tell if he ends up at Stoke."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
