Reading boss Nigel Adkins is showing an interest in Groningen winger Leandro Bacun, according to the player's agent.
The 21-year-old has impressed with his performances in Holland and Adkins is thought to be keeping tabs on the player with a view to making a summer swoop.
The player's agent Henk-Maarten Chin has confirmed the interest but it seems as though there is still plenty of work to do before a deal can be concluded and much will depend on what division Reading find themselves in next season.
"I do not deny that Reading is interested in Bacuna. He is a real box-to-box player and that they find interesting in England," the agent revealed.
However Groningen officials are playing down the rumours and the Dutch club's managing director Hans Nijland says The Royals have yet to make an approach.
"At present, no club has come forward and spoken to Groningen about any player," he added.
