The 18-year-old played 22 times for the Royals in all competitions throughout a breakthrough 2018/19 season.

However, he may not be at the Madejski Stadium for too much longer with Goal reporting that the Chelsea and city rivals Arsenal are tracking the forward.

The Berkshire club want the talented teenager to sign a new deal with them but with just one-year left on his existing contract it’s thought he’s keeping his options open.

Chelsea, who will have to fight off a 'two-window' FIFA transfer ban to make any signings, it’s claimed that Southampton, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also keen on Loader.

Clubs from Germany, France and Italy are also monitoring the striker who was part of England’s Under-17s World Cup winning team in 2017.
