Lua Lua goes Greek, Yak could go to Everton, and Anelka always was unlikely. Now, the news of the World is saying we will go for Nugent’s u21 strike partner, Leroy Lita.
I would not be against such a move, as he was very impressive last season, and has already formed a partnership with Nugent – that took England to the semis of the under 21 championship, and has always looked like he has plenty of goals in him.
Recently, Lita refused to sign a new contract with Reading, wishing to leave his options open – leading to speculation that Reading may try to offload him before either he went for a free in 2 seasons time, or at a cut-price fee this time next year.
I doubt very much that there is much substance to this rumour, as it just seems very convenient that we need a striker, and Reading could be looking to offload one, but it is a move I would not oppose, although I feel it is more likely to be the news of the world putting 2 and 2 together, and making 5.
