Chelsea are close to agreeing deals that will see Nathan Chalobah and Lucas Piazon go out on loan to Reading, according to the Reading chronicle.
Chalobah spent last year on loan in Reading and it looks like the 20-year-old is close to rejoining Steve Clarke's side for the current campaign.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Brazilian attacker Piazon is also close to securing a move to Reading. The skilful attacker can play on the wing, at number ten or as a striker. His versatility will no doubt prove valuable for Reading's campaign.
