The 26-year-old has recently been out of action with a hamstring problem, but he has enjoyed another stellar season with the Whites in the opening months of the current campaign.
The 26-year-old midfielder may move on to pastures new before the January transfer window shuts down, potentially to a club playing in the Championship.
According to Nick Mashiter, the Potters have identified the Englishman as a potential January signing and are considering a deal over the line as soon as possible.
The 25-year-old has become a first-team regular with the Italian club, making 16 league appearances this season.
The Nigeria international spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan with Fulham, however, a permanent move to Craven Cottage failed to materialise following their relegation to the Championship.
