Reading FC have made remarkable progress since Jose Gomes was appointed as Paul Clement’s successor earlier this season.
The Royals looked in deep trouble under Clement, and Gomes was brought in to try and get them clear of the relegation zone, which he’s certainly achieved.
The Berkshire-based side are currently four points clear of the bottom three and will be keen to build on some impressive results in recent weeks.
One of the main reasons that their form has turned around since the turn of the year is because of the talent that the newly appointed boss brought in during the January transfer window.
The likes of Nelson Oliveira and Emiliano Martinez have played a key role in their impressive run of results but a key duo have stood out above the rest in recent weeks.
Baker in particular has improved every game as the season heads towards a conclusion, with many supporters wanting him to make his stay in Berkshire, a permanent one.
Miazga has also previously revealed that he isn’t ruling out extending his stay with Reading beyond the end of this season and this would be a serious coup for Jose Gomes’ side.
Both men are currently on loan from Chelsea, but the Blues could be tempted to cash-in on the pair, who are unlikely to be able to force their way into the first-team anytime soon.
There’s no doubting that the pair could arguably be playing at higher level, but they’ve made themselves fan favourites at the Madejski Stadium and could certainly be tempted to sign permanently in the summer.
It should be a no-brainer for Reading to make an offer to Chelsea for both players, as they could certainly play a starring role in the future of the club heading towards next season.
Reading have got the quality in their squad to be challenging for a top six finish, but we didn’t see the best of that in the first-half of this year’s campaign which will have been frustrating to see.
But since Gomes took charge and the likes of Baker and Miazga came in, they have looked like a completely different team, for all of the right reasons.
The Royals need to be doing everything they can to sign the Chelsea pair in the summer, however unlikely and ambitious it might be.
