Leicester City are said to be one of several clubs interested in signing Reading striker Danny Loader.
According to Goal, the 18-year-old is on the radar of the Foxes, who face competition from a number of other Premier League clubs.
Wolves, Chelsea and Southampton are named as potential suitors for the England Under-19 international, although Juventus, Lille and Rennes have expressed their interest from the continent.
Reading have entered into contract negotiations with Loader, who is understood to be exploring his options as so many clubs continue to monitor his situation.
Loader made eight starts in the Championship towards the end of last season, during which he scored a stunning effort that earned him the club’s Goal of the Season award.
