Ramadan Sobhi of Stoke City has thrown his future up in the air by suggesting that he is unsure of continuing with Stoke City next season.
Ramadan was quoted as saying on his national TV channel: “I hope to be able to perform well for Stoke, so I can be with Egypt at the World Cup. I hope we do well at the World Cup – and then I can start thinking about leaving the club.”
His agent has added further fuel to the fire by quoting to a radio station: “I have four offers from Premier League clubs for Ramadan, but the offers have not reached Stoke City yet. So far it is not yet clear if Stoke will remain in the Premier League or not. We will see what happens. I will sit down with them in May.”
The winger has been highly impressive for the Potters and if he were to leave, Lambert’s men would need a replacement. Here are three options for them to consider.
The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Celtic and has been excellent in his loan spell for the Hoops. However, he has not been seen as a part of the Guardiola team at the Etihad in the current scenario and that would mean that the Citizens would be open to the idea of selling him at the right price. Roberts has gone on to make over 70 appearances for Celtic scoring 18 goals and making 24 assists. He can not only play from either wing but also as a centre-forward.
The 29-year-old would be another experienced campaigner who can be considered by Celtic. He has former experience of playing in the English Premier League thus making him all the more valuable. He has not only played for the smaller English clubs like Swansea City and Aston Villa but also featured for the giants like Manchester City and Chelsea. He has been in excellent form for the Hoops recently meaning that a move back to England could be on the cards. This would make Stoke City a valid option.
The American speedster currently features for Borussia Dortmund. He has been excellent for the BVB outfit. He is only 19-years old but has been one of the star players at the club for the German team. He is a player with a big future ahead of him if he continues to perform at this rate and Stoke could weasel in for him next season.
