Swansea City locked in talks with £5m World Cup winner, move expected

Swansea City fans in the Transfer Tavern understand that their club is actively seeking a quality striker this summer following the exits of Eder, Bafetimbi Gomis and Alberto Paloschi, but are becoming increasingly weary that the season is drawing ever closer.

The Daily Star reports today that the Swans are now targeting Sevilla striker Fernando Llorente, in a bid bolster their frontline frailties ahead of the coming season.

Jacks chairman Huw Jenkins has said he expects to bring in new faces before the end of the week.

“It was always going to be the case after the Euros that a lot of the transfer business would be done later than normal,” said Jenkins.

“But we fully expect to make one or two additions in the next few days. We have worked hard in the summer to change things around for the forthcoming season.

“We want a good, hungry squad of players that the manager is keen to work with.”

It is understood that Nacer Chadli and Leonardo Ulloa are back-up targets should a deal for the Spaniard fall through.

Francesco Guidolin is thought to be ready to pay upwards of £5m for the World Cup winning forward, who has found life difficult since leaving Atletico Bilbao.

Still, he boasts an impressive trophy cabinet, having won the World Cup and the European championships with La Roja. 

Is Llorente’s style well suited to the Premier League? Let us know below…
