Reading striker Kevin Doyle is also being chased by Fulham, Sunderland and Bolton.

The Royals striker has already been in talks with Premier League new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers concerning a £6.5million switch to Molineux.

But the Reading Post reports that four other clubs are also willing to match the Royals’ valuation of their Irish international. Reading know that the 25 year-old will be moving on from the Madjeski Stadium following their relegation – so it is down to Doyle to settle on his destination. Everton and Aston Villa top the bill but Fulham are reportedly also strong contenders.
