The 18-year-old midfielder has caught the eye at U21 level this season and is said to be drawing admiring glances from a number of a Premier League sides.

A £2million offer from City has been mooted, while others would be expected to join the chase if a bidding war was sparked.

Kuhl, though, claims to be paying little attention to the rumours and insists he would be more than happy to continue his development at the Madejski Stadium.

He told the Reading Post: "It's all just rumours.

"It's good to have rumours like that, getting your name in the paper and getting people to notice you, but I want to stay here.

"I've come through this club, I'm an academy product. I've been here for six or seven years now. This place means everything.

"It's my home basically. I come in every day, live, breathe, eat - I do everything here.

"It's a great club to be around. Everyone is humble and nice to talk to, so it's all good."

Kuhl added: "You get a burst of excitement (when you see the reports) but then you realise you've just got to stay down to earth and don't let anything like that get in your head.

"The boys have all been getting into me a bit, talking about the £2 million price tag, but it's all a bit of banter.

"Nothing is going to change. I'm happy where I am and if I keep going the way I am then hopefully the manager (Nigel Adkins) will take notice. He's put young players in the first team before as you've seen."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
