Reading Set For £3m Bougherra Bid

Reading Set For £3m Bougherra Bid

Reading boss Steve Coppell is set to bolster his squad by launching a £3m bid for highly-rated Owls defender Madjid Bougherra, according to reports today.

Bougherra has been hotly tipped for a move away from Hillsborough during the January transfer window, with Charlton Athletic already having a £1.3m bid rejected earlier this week.

And the £3m offer for the Algerian international could prove too much for Wednesday to resist, with the defender already seeming unsettled with the news over a move to the top-flight.

'All players want to play in the Premiership - it's [every] player's dream. I want to play [there] as quickly as possible - whether it's with Sheffield Wednesday or another club I don't know.' he told the official owls site.

Wednesday would see a huge profit made for the deal, after signing the 24-year-old for £200,000 from French club FC Gueugnon in the summer - and Owls boss Brian Laws could well use the money to strengthen in other areas.

My thoughts exactly whites! But what can we do when £3m is on the table for a player we just bought for 200,000?

I just had a feeling that all this transfer speculation would unsettle Magic and it seems that is the case. Still 3 mil represents good business especially if Laws is allowed to reinvest it all in the team.

It is all down the the scumbag agents that are ruining the game. He signed a contract, and should stick to it, if we sacked him, his agent would demand we pay his contract, so on the flip side, if he leaves 2 years before end of his contract, he should be forced to pay it off before he gets his big move to the Premiership
