If there's one thing that Reading have been guilty of in recent years more than anything else, it's an inability to earn fair market value on a player when departing.

Last season alone, £9.2m left the club for free as John Swift, Josh Laurent and Andy Rinomhota all walked away in the summer of 2022.

Lucas Joao, worth a reported £1.2m according to Transfermarket, has departed this month for free four years after his £5m move to Berkshire.

With the Royals dropping into League One, it is inevitable that some stars are likely to want out, but how much should Mark Bowen be holding out for?

Take a look at Reading's current squad's market value, according to Transfermarket.
