Leeds United are among the clubs keen on bringing in Reading striker, Danny Loader, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The Royals face losing Loader for nothing this summer as they were apparently forced to withdraw a contract offer thanks to the current global situation.
And that has now opened the door for onlooking clubs to make their move, with Leeds, Crystal Palace, and Swansea City among the names mentioned as being keen.
Loader, who has played less than ten times this season for Reading, is still only 19. He was previously set for a move to Wolves but that fell through last year.
Leeds, though, could well fancy themselves as front-runners. With the Championship looking increasingly likely to resume, the Whites will be keen to seal promotion.
Once that is sorted, all eyes will turn to the transfer market. Loader, then, could be seen as the ideal signing, especially on a free transfer.

While Crystal Palace would mean a move closer to his current home and stay around the capital, Leeds might be the fresh start Loader needs.
Marcelo Bielsa is a tactical and managerial genius. The chance to work with the Leeds boss should be enough to tempt in any player.
With Loader as well, there is clearly talent there. Indeed, the Dailly Mail previously compared him to Jadon Sancho.
That was, in part, thanks to links with German clubs but nevertheless, it is a healthy comparison. If Loader can achieve anything like Sancho has so far in his career, then Leeds will have a quality addition on their hands.
