The Russian frontman is expected to be on the move once the transfer window re-opens after suffering relegation out of the Premier League.
He only linked up with the Royals in 2012, but has been unable to help them avoid an immediate return to the Championship.
Having proven himself at Fulham and Reading, there is expected to be plenty of interest in Pogrebnyak's services.
A return to his homeland has been mooted, but the 29-year-old's representative claims his client is not looking to leave England just yet.
Oleg Artemov told Sport Express: "Until the season is over we wouldn't say anything.
"Pavel has a contract with Reading and we don't want to reveal our secrets."
Pressed on whether Pogrebnyak would be looking to stay in England, Artemov said: "Yes."
