Stoke could face a battle to land Tomas Rincon as Fulham and Sunderland are also keen on the Hamburg midfielder.
The German outfit look set to lose the Venezuela international in the near future, with Rincon's contract due to expire in June 2014.
With talks on a new deal showing no signs of progress, Hamburg are ready to let the 25-year-old leave on the cheap in the new year, rather than risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
The Bundesliga club are looking for offers in the region of £2.2million, which should not be a problem for Potters boss Mark Hughes.
However, Fulham might also be keen and Cottagers boss Martin Jol, who brought the South American to Hamburg in January 2009, will hope he is able to persuade Rincon to jump ship again and join him at Fulham.
Stoke and Fulham aren't the only Premier League club interested in Rincon, with Sunderland manager Gus Poyet believed to also be keen.
