After a disappointing season, Reading are looking to rebuild their squad in order to push up the table.
They finished 17th place in the end, just three points above 21st place Rotherham and 22 points off the play-off spots.
Many expected them to make a run for that top six at the start of the season, but their squad didn’t perform and they had to settle for lower mid-table.
A number of key players have departed from the club this summer already, with Hal Robson-Kanu, Anton Ferdinand and Simon Cox not having their contract renewed, whilst loanees Michael Hector, Andrew Taylor, Ola John, Lucas Piazon, Alex Fernandez and Matej Vydra will be returning to their respective parent clubs for next term.
Their matchday squad for their first fixture of the season next year could be quite different to the one they fielded for their final game of this campaign, as they will need to make up for the players they have lost.
Here, in the opinion of FootballLeagueWorld’s Ryan Evans, is FIVE players that Reading cannot afford to miss out on this summer…..
