Jaap Stam’s Reading are plotting an eye-watering £9 million move for Brentford’s star striker Scott Hogan, according to The Scottish Sun.

Hogan has been in sublime form this season after returning from a serious knee-injury that ruled him out for almost two-years, and his rapid return to goal-scoring has alerted numerous suitors.

Having netted 13 goals in 23 games for the Bees so far this campaign, Norwich and Derby have previously been linked with the former Rochdale striker, as have sides in the Premier League such as Swansea,

However, it appears Reading, who have Chinese investment and the money to aid their promotion tilt, are the first to make their move.

Hogan joined Brentford in 2014 for £750,000, and if he is to leave Griffin Park this January, the club will want a considerable amount for the striker, as Dale are set to receive up to 25% of his transfer fee.

Reading have genuine aspirations to achieve automatic promotion, despite already being eight points behind second-place Brighton, and Hogan could be the missing piece of their puzzle.
