Reading FC are set to sign Romanian striker George Puscas from Inter Milan, the Chronicle understands.

Several media outlets have reported that Puscas is due to join the Royals for a fee of around £7.5m, which is believed to be a club record.

Puscas was also linked with Birmingham but has chosen Reading over the Blues, as he believes they have a better chance of promotion to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old is reportedly set to fly to the UK today for a medical before completing his move before Thursday's deadline.
