Liverpool reveal transfer stance on in-demand midfielder

Published

on

Reading FC have been dealt a frustrating blow in their pursuit of Liverpool midfielder, Ovie Ejaria with the Reds keen to move him on permanently according to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent, Neil Jones. 

Jones also claims that Brentford are interested in signing the Liverpool midfielder, who has seemingly made a good impression on the Bees last season.

Ejaria spent last year’s league campaign with Reading, making 16 league appearances for the Berkshire-based club, whilst also scoring once.

He played a key role in Reading’s survival in the Championship last term, and without him, they would have been in real trouble.

It had previously been claimed by journalist, Courtney Friday that Reading were edging closer to completing a deal to sign Ejaria on loan for the season.

But Liverpool’s transfer stance on the midfielder will be hugely irritating for the Royals, who would have thought that a deal was close to being completed.

According to The Sun, Reading were under a ‘soft transfer ban’, although Jose Gomes has revealed to BBC Radio Berkshire that the transfer embargo has been lifted.

It’s set to be an interesting summer ahead at the Madejski Stadium, and it’s certainly not going to be the last we hear of rumours of Reading’s interest in Ejaria.

The Verdict: 

This will be a hugely frustrating update for Reading supporters.

They would have thought that this deal was done and dusted, but it seems as though there is a real stumbling block in their way now.

If Brentford don’t match Liverpool’s valuation of him, then I would expect him to join Reading on loan, but Ejaria surely won’t be wanting to stay with Liverpool under 23’s team for all of next season.
