English side Reading are set to snap up Ghana starlet Francis Boadi after the highly-rated midfielder impressed on trial.

Boadi was part of the Ghana side that beat Brazil at the Under-17 World Cup Finals last summer.

Since then a whole host of clubs - including Arsenal and Liverpool - have monitored the progress of the youngster, who turns 17 next November.

A source told the Mirror: "Francis is a player with fantastic ability and he just wants to go to a club where he will get a chance.

"Reading have shown that they want to help him fulfil his potential and he is excited about the opportunity."
