Reading chasing Chelsea trio

Chelsea trio Michael Mancienne, Jack Cork and Ryan Bertrand are all in the sights of Reading boss Brendan Rodgers.

The Reading Chronicle says the trio would all arrive on loan and add valuable competition to the Royals squad ahead of the new Championship campaign which begins on August 8.

Rodgers worked with all three during his time as Chelsea's reserve team manager and had the highly-rated Cork on loan last season when he was in charge at Vicarage Road.

Rodgers said he was 'very interested' in raiding the West London club and added: "It's very natural that you want to bring in three or four players who you've worked with in the past who can bring a new motivation to the group."
