Reading FC are interested in signing former Watford striker Andre Gray following his release from Vicarage Road.

The 30-year-old spent last year on loan with Queens Park Rangers where he scored 10 goals as they missed out on the play-offs.

Prolific at Football League level, Gray notched 20 in 52 at Brentford and 33 in 78 at Burnley before making a reported £17m switch to Hertfordshire in 2017.

According to FootyInsiders, the Wolverhampton-born forward is wanted by Championship trio Birmingham City, Cardiff City and the Royals.

He will be a free agent in the summer, ending his five year stint with the Hornets.
