Reading holding out for big money

Alex McCarthyReading are keen to keep Alex McCarthy and are reported to have slapped a £15million price tag on the head of goalkeeper.

The Royals star missed a chunk of last season through injury but put in some impressive displays when he did play despite the club being relegated to the Championship.

Liverpool are known to be very keen after he put in a man-of-the-match performance against them recently while Chelsea, Newcastle, Fulham and Tottenham have also been linked.

Reports claim that Spurs sent a scout to watch McCarthy in action on the last day of the season against West Ham and could be ready to make a move for the keeper.

Reading will do all they can to keep hold of the 23-year-old, who has just been called up to the England squad, and any interested club will have to pay big money to be in with a chance of luring him away.
