Reading FC transfer round-up: EFL club edge ahead in race to sign 17-goal man, Ronan Curtis update emerges



Reading will be looking to challenge for promotion into the Premier League once again next season, whilst under the management of Veljko Paunovic. 

The Berkshire-based side finished seventh in the Championship table, and the club’s supporters are likely to be slightly frustrated, as they missed out on a top-six finish in the second tier after such a strong first-half of that campaign.

The Royals showed their quality in that first-half of the season, but dropped crucial points in the second-half of the campaign, which saw them miss out on the play-off places.

But there were plenty of positives to take for the Madejski Stadium faithful, and they’ll be hoping that their side can keep hold of their key players during the summer transfer window.

We take a look at the latest transfer rumours coming out of the Madejski Stadium in the last week.

Update on previous transfer target emerges 

Reading were previously credited with interest in signing Portsmouth winger Ronan Curtis, with the Irishman catching the eye with some strong performances for the League One side.

But Hampshire Live have revealed that Pompey are yet to receive any formal approach from any interested clubs in Curtis’ services this summer.

Derby County and Blackburn Rovers have also been previously interested in a deal to sign the 25-year-old, who scored 14 goals for Danny Cowley’s side last term, as they missed out on a top-six finish.

Jorge Grant latest 

Reading are reportedly interested in signing Lincoln City midfielder Jorge Grant, according to Lincolnshire Live.

Football Insider have also recently claimed that Peterborough United are in ‘pole position’ to land his signature this summer, but it remains to be seen as to what stage of negotiations the newly-promoted side are at with Grant.

Grant was in hugely impressive form during the 2020/21 season, as he scored 17 goals, and was on hand to provide 13 assists for his Imps team-mates, as they narrowly missed out on promotion, after a defeat to Blackpool in the League One play-off final.
