The midfielder has been an unpopular figure at Aston Villa of late.
The Mail’s report suggests that Reading are interested in landing the 25-year-old, but are yet to agree a fee with the Midlands club.
Bacuna started Villa’s first league game of the season against Hull and came in for criticism from the Villa fans for a poor display, but didn’t travel with the squad for the Carabao Cup first-round clash against Colchester.
And as news broke of the Royals’ interest in the Dutchman, the supporters wasted little time in expressing their joy on Twitter:

Sooner the better.Can't believe he started against Hull.— Alan Smith (@alansmith1962) August 9, 2017
He won't be missed if he does leave. I heard it's Reading who are interested in signing him.— There Is A Light (@SabBeale) August 9, 2017
Bacuna has never been good enough; he's an average player and doesn't have a single outstanding attribute. #avfc— Villa Views (@ViewsVilla) August 9, 2017
Decent at times but I can't remember when!— Mattcayley (@MattcayleyM) August 9, 2017
GREAT news— knockatipton.A✌FC (@knockatipton1) August 9, 2017
Best bit about tonight was hearing Bacuna will likely be sold!— Jordan Spencer (@JordAvfc) August 9, 2017
Bacuna has spent five seasons at Villa Park having signed for the club from Groningen in 2013/14. He scored five goals in his debut season in the Premier League, but was unable to ever match that tally as he became a utility player for the team.
However, with Bruce particularly spoilt for choice on the right-hand side of the pitch this season having signed Ahmed Elmohamady from former club Hull, Bacuna looks set to link up with countryman Jaap Stam following one below-par display in central midfield.
