According to a report from Football Insider, Premier League side Wolves are considering a move for Reading starlet Danny Loader.
Reading’s young striker Danny Loader is on the radar of Premier League side Wolves ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window, a report from Football Insider has claimed.
Loader has been involved in the first-team picture at the Madejski Stadium over the course of the 2018/19 Championship season, coming in from the youth academy to play 21 times in the Championship, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
A number of top-flight clubs have been keeping an eye on Loader this season, but it seems that it is Wolves who are looking to make the first move to try and tempt the youngster away from Reading.
The 18-year-old’s strong form for the club Under-23s side saw him impress Jose Gomes. In 11 Premier League 2 games, Loader netted an impressive 10 goals, including four braces. Loader has also scored 10 goals in 18 games for the club’s Under-18s side, working his way through the club’s youth ranks since joining in 2012.
Loader has represented England at four different youth levels as well. He has amassed 39 appearances for the country’s Under-16s, Under-17s, Under-18s and Under-20s in total, netting 14 goals for the Young Lions along the way.
The upcoming summer transfer window could be a difficult one for Reading. The club may be forced into letting go some of their more valuable players in order to fund new signings. Star man Jonathan Swift has been linked with a summer move away from the club, with Leeds United being credited with interest.
