Reading boss Brian McDermott is off to watch MK Dons against Huddersfield in the League One play-off semi-finals before travelling to see Wigan against Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.
On loan Royals centre-back Sean Morrison is set to play for the Terriers alongside in-demand Jordan Rhodes, who has scored an incredible 38 goals in 43 appearances this season.
Rhodes has previously been linked with a switch to Madejski Stadium.
“I’m sure most clubs in the Premier League will be looking at him,” added a guarded McDermott when asked if he was interested in the 22-year-old striker.
Tough-tackling Valenciennes midfielder Carlos Sanchez and Newcastle’s Danny Guthrie are rumoured to be targets.
Out-of-contract Sanchez, a 26-year-old Columbia international, is also wanted by Serie A sides Udinese and Genoa, while ex-Liverpool midfielder Guthrie has rejected a contract extension at Newcastle as he seeks guaranteed first-team football.
