Wolves are one of a host of Premier League teams reportedly looking at Reading captain Liam Moore.

TEAMtalk claimed yesterday that the 27-year-old is hot property, with Wolves joined in the hunt by Newcastle United, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Southampton and his former club Leicester City.

Moore has been with the Royals since 2016 and has clocked up almost 200 appearances at the Madejski Stadium.

The player has been in particularly good form so far in 2020/21, helping Reading climb to the top of the Championship table after seven games, conceding just one goal in the process.

It is thought that Leicester may have the advantage in the race for Loughborough-born Moore, who made 67 appearances for the Foxes’ first-team between 2011 and 2016.

 

He played a part in Leicester’s return to the Premier League, but only made 10 starts the following season before heading out on loan to Bristol City.

Moore is about to enter his prime years, and one wonders if Wolves are looking to bolster their defensive options having bid farewell to Ryan Bennett earlier this month.

Moore one to watch for Wolves

Wolves are well stocked for centre-back options at the moment, but that doesn’t mean the club shouldn’t strike where there’s an opportunity and Moore is worth keeping an eye on.

He has been a dominant force at the back for Reading in their Championship campaign so far, and the fact he’s a captain surely only adds to the lure.
