Reading are set to move for Brazilian defensive midfielder Felipe Araruna, the Reading Chronicle understands.

The 23-year-old is currently plying his trade on loan at Brazillian outfit Fortaleza from fellow Brazilian side São Paulo.

Reading are hoping to tie up the deal but it is understood that loan terms could prove to be a stumbling block.  

Araruna, who plays primarily as a defensive midfielder, has made 22 appearances to date for São Paulo.
