Reading are ready to offer £2 million for the 23-year old, who won Brighton's Player of the Season award last month after some fine performances in the centre of Gus Poyet's fluid midfield. Fellow Premier League sides Aston Villa and Fulham are also interested.
Bridcutt was also born in Reading, before starting his youth career with Chelsea in 2004 and winning a professional deal three years later. After loan spells at Yeovil, Watford and Stockport, he joined Brighton in the summer of 2010. Liam has since played 80 games for the Seagulls, scoring two goals.
