Swansea City could be set to make a coup in the transfer market as they look to sign Villareal veteran, Marcos Senna.
The former Spanish international looks as though he might be considering a move away from El Madigral despite the club’s desire to discuss a contract extension. Senna’s agent has spoken of contact between his client and the Welsh club, insisting that a move to the Premier League is a very viable option.
The Brazilian born player would fit in perfectly with the Swansea City set up as he could add experience and composure to the young midfield. The World Cup winner earned plaudits across the globe after playing a crucial role in Spain’s Euro 2008 winning campaign.
The midfielder has fallen out of favour at both international and club level since then and would be interested in a move to England to start a new chapter in his career. This is the last opportunity he will get to move to the EPL as he draws closer to the end of his playing days and such a move would suit him and Brendan Rodger’s team well.
The 34 year-old shows beautiful skill and elegancy on the ball and helps to dictate the game from midfield which would work well with the likes of Leon Britton and Joe Allen just in front of him. Their work rate and movement would help him to play a short passing game in the vein of the Busquets, Xavi and Iniesta trio. Rodgers likes his team to build on the philosophy instilled by Roberto Martinez and play a style of football reminiscent of Barcelona and the Spanish national team and Marcos Senna could be the final piece to that puzzle.
The Villareal man shares similarities as a player with Patrick Vieira and like Manchester City did in bringing in the former Arsenal midfielder, Swansea City would only benefit from the experience and technical ability of his doppelganger.
This could be a great step in the right direction for Brendan Rodgers as he looks to bring the beautiful game of the South Wales club to spectators of the English Premier League.
