Gustav Engvall comments on training with Stoke with reported £1.7m deal likely this summer

Stoke City could add the exciting young striker to their ranks this summer.

IFK Gothenburg striker Gustav Engvall has been speaking to Swedish newspaper Goteborgs-Posten after taking part in two days of training at Stoke City ahead of a proposed summer transfer.

The 19-year-old has already featured 63 times for his current club, scoring 16 goals and providing nine assists in the process, which is an impressive return for one so young. So it is no surprise Stoke manager Mark Hughes has taken an interest.

Engvall was at Stoke’s training facilities earlier this week and he wasted little time talking about his experience, including what it was like to train with some of the Potters’ big name players.

“I think I got a good idea of how they work and how they are as a club,” Engvall told Goteborgs-Posten. “Everything is very professionally managed.”

And when asked what it was like to train with the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan, the youngster said, “No one imagines that moment, but it was cool.”

The report goes on to claim that Stoke and Gothenburg have agreed a fee of around £1.7million for the teenage forward, although the player himself acknowledged that while it was good to have the club interested a deal is not yet complete.

Stoke have impressed with many of their additions since Hughes took charge, and it seems he is not standing still despite the next transfer window being some time away.
