Reading joined by Bolton in 4-club race to sign international striker

Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw is wanted by four Championship clubs this summer, according to The Yorkshire Post.

Bradshaw is expected to leave Barnsley this summer after they were relegated to League One and four Championship clubs are keen to snap him up.

The 3-cap Wales international scored 12 goals in 44 appearances for the Tykes last season despite their relegation and he is being eyed up by Bolton Wanderers, Millwall, Reading and Rotherham United this summer.

Barnsley face a battle to keep him and Kieffer Moore with both forwards attracting Championship attention.

Bradshaw is a long-term target for Reading, who need a new striker to compete with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson next season.

Newly-promoted Rotherham have been linked with former loan star Moore but could instead move for his team-mate Bradshaw.

The 25-year-old is also on the radar of Bolton, who are eyeing someone to rival Adam le Fondre up top, while Millwall are considering a swoop for Bradshaw to bolster their promotion credentials.

With just one year left on his contract, the former Shrewsbury Town and Walsall striker could be available for a cut-price fee.

The Verdict

Bradshaw is improving each year he plays in the Championship and he is definitely worth a risk for any of these four clubs.

They all need strikers – at the very least to add depth to their squad – and Bradshaw will be a better player as a result of playing for two seasons in a struggling Championship side.

He is still relatively young and he is too good for League One, making him a decent acquisition for a cheap sum.

Reading, Bolton, Millwall and Rotherham fans – Can you sign Bradshaw? Would you like to see him at your club? Barnsley fans – Can you keep him? Let us know below…
