Reading are leading the chase for Lens starlet Geoffrey Kondogbia and are set to hold talks with the player, Sky Sports understands.

The 19-year-old midfielder is rated very highly and has attracted interest from Juventus.

In England, Newcastle, Everton and Sunderland were closely linked - but now Reading have emerged in pole position and are close to sealing a deal.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Kondogbia said: "I would love to join the Premier League, but there is nothing concrete yet.

"I am aware of the interest."
