West Ham United have reportedly joined the list of clubs wanting to sign Reading striker Danny Loader.
The 19-year-old forward will leave the Championship outfit on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
The Royals had needed to withdraw a contract offer for the England Under-20 international due to the coronavirus pandemic, they will no longer be due compensation.
According to ExWHUemployee, that could lead to West Ham United rivalling the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Crystal Palace and Leeds United for the prospect.
Although the teenager came close to joining Wolves last year, he is likely to consider his options given a number of clubs are interested in his signature.
Loader has scored two goals in 13 starts and 22 substitute outings across all competitions.
