Premier League trio keeping tabs on Potters ace

Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross is apparently being targeted by a number of top Premier League clubs after his consistent performances put him on their radar, according to Sky Sports.

Shawcross has been one of the top performing central defenders in England so far this season and his form even earned him an England call-up for their World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland by Roy Hodgson last week.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be the main admirers as the 25-year-old is coming into the final 18-months of his current contract.

Shawcross, who started his career at Old Trafford, has been plagued by negative media after he broke Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey’s leg in 2010, but it seems his form and honesty has changed peoples’ perceptions.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis will do his upmost to keep the defender at the Britannia Stadium, but the Potters may be enticed by a big money offer in January or next summer.
