Sunzu, 23, was given permission to be released from Zambia‚Äôs Africa Cup of Nations squad to train with the Royals in the past week and impressed in a game on Thursday.
He said: ‚ÄúEverything went well. I‚Äôm happy because I passed the assessment and it‚Äôs now up to TP Mazembe and Reading to finalise the deal. When they do that, I will sign the contract right here.‚ÄĚ
Two possible stumbling blocks to the deal could be TP Mazembe‚Äôs ¬£4m ¬≠valuation of Sunzu and Arsene Wenger‚Äôs interest in the player, says the Sunday Mirror.
