Having come through the academy ranks at Gillingham, Tucker has made a total of 137 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring four goals.
However, Tucker is out of contract with the Gills this summer, and after their relegation from League One at the end of the 2021/22 campaign, it seems the centre back could now be on the move.
Are these 20 Charlton transfer facts true or false?
The fact Tucker is a free agent means he would be a signing the Royals could make within the restrictions set out for them by the EFL after their breach of profit and sustainability regulations.
It is perhaps no surprise to see this sort of interest emerging in Tucker.
The 22-year-old has shown that he is already a hugely promising centre back, with the potential to improve evn further with more experience, making him a potential long term asset.
As a result, he could be something of a bargain given he will be available for next to nothing with his contract now up, so it makes sense for clubs to look to swoop while they can.
There may also be a tough decision for Tucker over where he goes, given a switch to the Championship with Reading or Swansea could be more appealing, though he may have a better chance of regular game time in League One with Charlton.
