Non-league footballer Harry Cornick is being chased by both Southampton and Reading, who look set to battle it out for the young striker.
Cornick currently plays for Christchurch Football Club in the Sydenhams Premier Division and has impressed a number of scouts with his performances there. The 17 year old has been tipped for very big things and has been said to be playing in a league far lower than the level of even his current ability.
Both teams that achieved automatic promotion to the Barclays Premier League, Reading and Southampton, have been alerted to the abilities of Cornick and are considering to invite the youngster on trial at their respective training grounds. It has been reported that Bournemouth have already made an official move for Cornick, who can also play on the wing, but any approach from either of the Premier League sides will surely interest the teenager more.
Due to the fact that Cornick is not under any sort of contract with Christchurch he is eligible to sign for another club with ease. Christchurch manager, Graham Kemp, however, hopes that if Cornick were move to one of the top tier clubs then a friendly fixture could be agreed upon between the two clubs.
