English Premiership side Reading have emerged as strong favourites to sign Zambia and TP Mazembe defender Stopilla Sunzu.
Sources familiar with the development also dispelled speculation that Arsenal are also interested in looking at the 2012 Africa Cup winning defender.
“No he is not going to Arsenal,” the source told MTNFootball.com.”Everyone knows he is heading to Reading.”
Reading are seemingly winning the race to Sunzu’s signature after Tottenham Hotspur were earlier also reportedly interested in the defender.
Sunzu has been conspicuously missing from Zambia training over the weekend as they prepare for their December 22 friendly away to Tanzania in Dar-es-Salaam.
