It has been reported by The Mirror, that Reading and Wales forward, Hal Robson-Kanu is set to leave the club.

Swansea are said to be keen on bringing the former Arsenal trainee to the Liberty Stadium - Reading value him at £4m.

The 26-year-old has been with the Berkshire side for more than 10 years, having joined shortly after being released by The Gunners. He came through the ranks and after a few loan deals, established himself as a first team regular.

The London-born star has been in fine form for the Wales national team, helping Gareth Bale and co. top their Euro qualifying group.

Premier League desire

The player has one year left on his contract and has stated his desire to play in the Premier league. The forward, who has 26 caps and 2 goals for his country said: “The Premier League brought out the best in me and I make no qualms in saying it’s where I want to be."

“It’s always nice to hear clubs are interested in you. Every player wants to experience the best atmospheres and stadiums week-in and week-out.

"The season I had in the Premier League, I scored seven goals that year and was one of the stand out performers. It gave me the confidence and belief I could play at that well."

Attackers required

Swansea are in need of fire power since the departure of Wilfried Bony and Robson-Kanu would be a useful addition.

If Reading do not allow him to leave this summer, the most likely scenario is he will run down his contract and will evaluate his options next season.  

Do you think Robson-Kanu will be a useful addition to Swansea? Is he really worth £4m? Give us YOUR opinion in the comment box below!
