La Liga clubs fight over unlikely Euro 2016 hero for Wales

Wales international Hal Robson-Kanu is a man-in-demand following his exploits for the Wales national team at Euro 2016.

The 27-year-old shot to fame after scoring a goal following a Cruyff turn in the quarter-final victory over Belgium in the summer’s tournament.

Robson-Kanu, who is a free agent after his contract with Championship club Reading City expired this summer, has reportedly attracted interests from some of the major clubs in Europe.

Sky Sports (via Wales Online) reports that La Liga clubs Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are involved in the pursuit to secure the services of the striker.

The report claims that the representatives from both clubs have already contacted Robson-Kanu’s agent and they are set to fly to the UK to hold further talks regarding a potential move.

Robson-Kanu was set to join newly-promoted Premier League side Hull City until last week, but the untimely departure of Steve Bruce from the club derailed that move.

He joined Reading City at the age of 15 in 2004 and stayed with the club until this summer.
