Reading have rejected two bids from an unnamed club for midfielder Aaron Tshibola, according to a report.
Berkshire publication Get Reading claim that Aston Villa, Celtic and Norwich are among the interested clubs interested in the 21-year-old.
But football website Teamtalk have reported that sources have told them Reading are reluctant to lose 21-year-old midfielder and the Championship club have already rejected two bids for him.
The former England Under-18 player impressed during his 12 Championship appearances in 2015-16 and was a regular in the Reading lineup before his campaign was cruelly cut by an injury.
The former England youth international was forced to undergo surgery on a hamstring problem in February, but he is now back to full fitness and available for pre-season training.
Tshibola joined Reading as a junior and progressed through their academy, signing his second contract with Reading last September and that has three years left to run.
Villa and Celtic are both looking to mount title challenges next season and Tshibola could be seen as a key target for Roberto Di Matteo and Brendan Rodgers.
One of Tshibola’s suitors are keen to beat off rivals to gain his signature and have reportedly tabled two £1million plus offers for him, but they have both been rejected by Reading.
Reading, like Villa and Celtic are also under new management in Manchester United legend Jaap Stam. It is said that the new manager is looking to build a side capable of challenging for promotion, but further bids for the young midfielder are expected.
