The 20-year-old, who was released by the Layer Road club in September, has been looking for pastures new ever since, having attracted the interest of Third Division club Southend United.
Coppell has decided to run the rule over the youngster in Berkshire, with Royals chief scout Brian McDermott confirming the player is on trial.
"He's a young left-sided player who has played in Colchester's first team," McDermott told the club's official website.
"The gaffer is just having a look at him and he came to us earlier this week."
