Reading locked in transfer tussle with Swansea City to potential signing of European winger



Reading FC and Swansea City are reportedly eyeing a move for PEC Zwolle winger Virgil Misidjan heading into the summer transfer window according to Voetbal International. 

Misidjan has been with the Dutch club since January 2021, and has gone on to make 14 appearances in all competitions for them this term.

The winger has scored four goals, and been on hand to provide three assists for his PEC Zwolle team-mates, with his side currently sat 13th in the Eredivisie table.

The 27-year-old is out-of-contract in the summer, and no new deal with PEC Zwolle has been agreed as of yet, which has seen Reading register their interest in landing his signature ahead of the 2021/22 league campaign.

It’s set to be an interesting summer ahead for the Berkshire-based side, with Veljko Paunovic likely to be looking at adding to his first-team squad, after struggling with a number of injury problems during the 2020/21 season, which some of the Madejski Stadium faithful might feel as though it cost them a spot in the top-six.

Reading finished seventh in the second-tier standings, which will be hugely frustrating for the club’s supporters, after they had occupied a spot in the top-six for the majority of this year’s league campaign, after catching the eye with a number of strong performances early on.

Whereas Swansea City will be hoping they can win promotion into the Premier League via the play-offs, with Steve Cooper’s side set to take on Barnsley in their play-off semi-final.

Did these players make more than 100 appearances for Reading or not?

Did Nicky Shorey make more than 100 appearances for Reading FC?

The Verdict: 

He could prove to be a good addition to the Reading team in the future.

The Royals are going to need to be smart with their signings this summer, as it seems likely that they’re going to have a limited transfer budget due to spending in previous seasons.

Misidjan hasn’t played a considerable amount of matches this season due to injury, but he has impressed when he’s featured for PEC Zwolle.

There’s always an element of risk when it comes to signing a player with no experience in English football, so it would be interesting to see how Misidjan would adjust to life in the Championship, which is known for it’s high-intensity.
