Fulham striker Sone Aluko is on the verge of joining Championship rivals Reading.

The two clubs have agreed a fee of around £7.5m for the 28-year-old, who has scored nine goals in 54 appearances for the Whites.

Aluko is due to have a medical with the Royals on Tuesday.

Last month, Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic – who has no influence over transfer policy at Craven Cottage – warned the club against selling Aluko.

He said: “I have to fight for Sone Aluko, because around me is some news that we are thinking about selling him.

“If we do this, it will be a big mistake for my team.”
