Arsene Wenger's currently shallow squad will receive a boost in January if they can seal their targeted deals
Ipswich live updates
Danny Guthrie scored a stunning goal 15 minutes from time to hand Reading a 2-1 victory over Ipswich on their return to the Championship.
Jay Tabb had opened the scoring for Ipswich against his former club, but his early effort was cancelled out by Adam Le Fondre in first half stoppage time.
And it was Guthrie who left the best until last, giving Scott Loach little chance of keeping out his fearsome strike.
Ipswich have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe on a six-month loan deal.
The 20-year-old becomes Mick McCarthy's 10th signing of the summer in what has been a busy close-season at Portman Road.
Ipswich Town could re-sign defender Titus Bramble 11 years after he first left the club, after taking the former Sunderland defender on trial.
Bramble appeared in a friendly for the Tractor Boys ion Tuesday night against Gillingham.
– Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy speaking to the club's official website
I only met up with Titus for the first time at our pre-match meal. He asked if he could come in for training and wanted to play.
He's obviously interested in coming here and we are interested in him otherwise he wouldn't be playing for us. He showed a good commitment to come and play but it's early days yet. No more than that.

Who's been your club's player of the season? Tweet @itvfootball with your nominations.
An Ipswich fan who could not afford a ticket to the game against Bolton on Saturday got an unexpected but very welcome pair of tickets after he tweeted one of the ITFC players.
Before the game Tris Monk from Haverhill tweeted a good luck message to Ipswich's Tyrone Mings, in which he mentioned that he could not afford to go to the game.
Not long afterwards Mings tweeted Tris back asking if he could get to Portman Road, and said that there would be two tickets for the match waiting at the stadium.
Stars from the world of sport and showbiz were at The Sage in Gateshead on Monday night to celebrate the life of Sir Bobby Robson. The fundraiser was held on what would have been the former England and Newcastle manager's 80th birthday. He was remembered through songs, interviews and speeches.
Ipswich have parted company with striker Jason Scotland by mutual consent.
The 33-year-old penned a new one-year deal last summer under then-boss Paul Jewell but has only featured once off the bench since the appointment of Mick McCarthy in early November.
Scotland will now look to gain regular first-team football elsewhere.
McCarthy told Town's official website, www.itfc.co.uk: "Jason is a fantastic guy and has been great around the training ground but we are going younger and he's been missing out.
"He understands that and wants to go out and play football at the twilight of his career. We wish him well."
Scotland joined Ipswich from Wigan in 2010 and enjoyed close to 100 appearances in total, scoring 21 goals.
