Reports suggest that Chelsea winger Omari Hutchinson is 'very close' to agreeing a loan switch to Berkshire.

The teenage sensation Hutchinson joined the Blues from London rivals Arsenal last month but is set to join the Royals on a temporary move for the season.

The winger notched six goals and six assists in under 20 appearances for the Gunners in PL2 and had been named on Mikel Arteta’s bench on multiple occasions.

Predominantly playing off of the left-hand side, Hutchinson scored twice in the Checkatrade Trophy and played a full 90 minutes in the FA Youth Cup.

According to respected social media outlet Chelsea Loan Army, "Omari Hutchinson is very close to completing a loan move to Reading for the season. Deal essentially complete, just waiting on medical & final checks before its completely finalised."

It is a rumour which has refused to go away all summer, especially with his dad being a member of staff with the Royals.

Speaking on the teenager, boss Paul Ince remained tight lipped.

"There will always be named floating about, just like any club," he stated. “We’re on a tight, tight budget and we have to think about priorities. We lost our whole midfield and we’ve also looked to strengthen at the back and we’re still looking for a left-back. If there is any money left then we might look at someone like that, but we need to get our priorities right first.”

Midfielder Mamadou Loum was confirmed last week while defender Naby Sarr is expected to join imminently.

Ince still feels the squad need a defender, a midfielder and a striker.
