Paul Ince’s Reading have already lost the likes of Josh Laurent and John Swift following the expiry of their deals this summer with fellow midfielder Andy Rinomhota also in line for a free transfer move to ambitious Cardiff.

And the interest, particularly from Go Ahead Eagles and Famalicao who believe Azeez could become another English youngster to flourish abroad, is now presenting an obstacle to the Berkshire club’s hopes of retaining the 21 year-old.
Reading are trying to persuade Azeez to stay and have offered him a new deal.
Azeez was one of Reading’s standout youngsters last season in a campaign that ended with them successfully avoiding the drop.

He enjoyed a breakout year making 14 appearances, scoring twice having been handed his Royals debut towards the end of the previous 2021/22 season.

The Royals will open the new season with a trip to Blackpool on July 30 before hosting Cardiff the following week.
