Tomi Juric could be on his way to England, with high-flying Championship club Reading preparing a late bid for the Caltex Socceroos striker, confirmed his Swiss club FC Luzern.
FC Luzern's sporting director Remo Gaugler has confirmed the Swiss Super League outfit has received a "lucrative" offer for Juric, who only arrived at the club this season and has scored four goals in 17 appearances in all competitions.
According to Luzerner Zeitung, Reading - who sit third in the Championship - have made a bid of over €2million for Juric.
"An offer has arrived," Gaugler was quoted as saying.
Luzern are fourth in the Swiss Super League - 18 points behind leaders FC Basel.
Meanwhile, Reading could be on track to earn promotion to the Premier League, with Jaap Stam's side sitting in the play-off spots just over half way through the season with 52 points.
Brighton and Hove Albion (60 points) and Newcastle United (58) occupy the automatic promotion berths and both have a game in hand on Reading.
England's midseason transfer window closes on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old striker joined Luzern on a two-year deal after one season with Roda JC in the Netherlands.
Juric hasn't played for Luzern since November after sustaining a knee injury but is back training with the club ahead of the Swiss Super League's resumption this weekend.
