Stoke join race for Molde star
Stoke City are reportedly interested in former Manchester United youngster Magnus Wolff Eikrem, who plays in Norway for Molde.
The striker was highly-rated when part of the youth set-up at Old Trafford but failed to make the breakthrough into Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team. He went to Norway just over 12 months ago with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who, as manager, guided the side to their first league title in their 100-year history last season. Eikrem impressed in the championship-winning campaign, scoring four goals, and has attracted the attention of plenty of Europe's top scouts. Now the Potters are said to be showing an interest and boss Tony Pulis could make an offer for the 21-year-old in the summer as he looks to bolster his squad for next season. Pulis could, however, face competition from across the continent for the youngster, with German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach keen and Belgian side Genk also keeping an eye on him. Some reports even suggest United could come back in for Eikrem with Ferguson maintaining an interest in the striker.
