The Reading Chronicle have reported that the Royals are interested in Aldershot Town’s Idris Kanu.
The 17-year-old has made nine outings for Aldershot this season, contributing one goal which came last Saturday in a 2-0 victory at home to Boreham Wood, a win which lifted the Shots up to 9th in the table, however they remain 8 points from the play-off places.
Kanu only joined Aldershot in October, following a trial from English giants Manchester United, and turned down a youth contract with the Red Devils to seek a first team football opportunity.
But it’s a former Man United man Jaap Stam who wants to take him away from the Recreation Ground, and sign him for his Reading squad.
Reading have had a decent start to life under Stam, climbing to 3rd in the Championship table, despite being on the wrong end of a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Fulham last time out.
