Ronald Sobowale – the cousin of Bayern Munich star David Alaba – is reportedly on the radar of Championship sides Sheffield Wednesday and Reading, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Championship duo Sheffield Wednesday and managerless Reading have registered an interest in Walton Casuals striker Ronald Sobowale.

The Championship duo are just two of a group of sides reportedly keen on bringing in non-league striker Sobowale. Premier League pair Cardiff City and Watford are also big fans of the young striker.

However, it seems that Cardiff and League One promotion contenders Barnsley are leading the pack of sides keen on the promising striker. Sobowale has gone on trial with both Cardiff City and Barnsley this season, particularly impressing in behind closed doors games for both sides.

The Walton Casuals forward scored what proved to be the winning goal for Cardiff City, as a behind closed doors trial game finished 1-0 to The Bluebirds against Vancouver Whitecaps. Sobowale also scored for Barnsley in a behind closed doors friendly against Championship promotion contenders and South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United.

If youngster Sabowale can emulate the quality of his cousin David Alaba – Bayern Munich and Austria national team star – then any club that brings the striker in will have a seriously talented player on their hands.

The striker was released by Premier League side Chelsea at the age of just 15, with The Blues believing he was too small. However, he seems to have developed into a threatening forward since then, and Sheffield Wednesday and Reading see him ready to prove himself in the Football League.
