Opinion: 3 reasons why Reading should buy a marquee striker in January



Reading are flying in this year’s Championship campaign and not even the most optimistic Royals fan would have predicted that Jaap Stam would have settled into management so seamlessly.

It was seen as a highly risky gamble to appoint the inexperienced Jaap Stam, who had never managed a professional side and never coached in England.

Nonetheless he has defied the odds and guided Reading to third place in the Championship after seventeen matches, with 31 points to their name.

Reading trail Brighton and Hove Albion in second place by four points but they are on a superb run of form recently with Stam overseeing four consecutive league wins.

The Championship is already shaping up to be an exciting campaign with a number of teams scrapping for those promotion places and play-off spots.

With the January window coming up, Reading will no doubt be tempted to splash the cash in order to strengthen their squad for the run-in.

Here are three reasons why they need to spend big money on a striker when the transfer window re-opens.
