The 21-year-old has scored five goals in 29 appearances in the Eredivisie this season, while establishing a reputation as an effective box-to-box midfielder.
Nigel Adkins has reportedly sent scouts to watch the Dutch Under-21 international, who came through the youth ranks at the Euroborg-based outfit.
His agent Henk-Maarten Chin revealed told Dutch TV station Rtvnoord: "I do not deny that Reading is interested in Bacuna.
"He is a real box-to-box player and that they find interesting in England."
Bacuna made his senior debut against PSV Eindhoven in October 2009.
