Reading To Rival Watford For Signature Of Italian Legend Pippo Inzaghi

Royals to vie for Inzaghi signature.

Newly promoted Reading are preparing to battle it out with Watford for the signature of Italian legend Flippo Inzaghi.

The 38-year-old is a free agent after ending his 11-year stay at AC Milan earlier this year.

Watford, who were taken over by the Italian Pozzo family last week and are now managed by Gianfranco Zola, reportedly gave Inzaghi a tour of their training complex today, as they attempt to lure the veteran to the Vicarage Road.

But Reading have emerged as serious contenders for the legendary goal-scorer, who netted twice during Milan’s 2-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool in 2007.

Inzaghi enjoyed a glittering career at the San Siro, scoring 126 goals and playing a key part in the side that claimed two Serie A titles and two Champions League crowns.

TalkSPORT report that Reading have offered Inzaghi a yearly salary of £940,000 to move to the Madjeski Stadium but the lure of Watford’s Italian connection may yet prove too strong.
