Several Bristish media have reported that both Chelsea and Atletico have had talks with the 16-year-old, who won the European Under-17 Championship with the Netherlands in 2019 alongside Chelsea’s Ian Maatsen.

Sankoh whose physical attributes and prolific strike-rate have prompted comparisons to former Chelsea forward Lukaku is said to also eligible to represent Sierra Leone.

Sankoh signed for Stoke from Sparta Rotterdam in 2018, alongside his brother Abdul, having featured for the Dutch side as a youth player.
