‘We can’t get rid of him’ – Many Reading FC fans react as Watford, Crystal Palace begin to circle

Watford, Crystal Palace and Brighton are interested in signing Reading forward Yakou Meite, according to the Telegraph.

Meite joined Reading from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2016, and has since had five impressive seasons at the Madejski Stadium.

The 25-year-old has scored 11 goals in 25 league appearances for the Royals this season, as Veljko Paunovic’s side narrowly missed out on a play-off finish.

It has been a somewhat frustrating campaign for Meite, who has made only 25 appearances in the Championship having endured problems with a knee injury this term.

Did Jay Tabb ever score a goal for Reading?

But the Ivorian has enjoyed another impressive season in front of goal, having scored 13 goals in 2019/20 and 12 goals in 2018/19.

Meite is out of contract at the end of next season, though, and the Telegraph report that newly-promoted Watford have joined Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion in the race to sign the powerful attacker.

It is also reported that Meite would cost around £5million this summer, as the Royals look to cling onto their speedy forward.
