Capital One Cup winners working hard behind the scenes.
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has promised the club’s fans that he and manager Michael Laudrup are working hard to bring new faces into the Liberty Stadium, Sky Sports reports.
The Swans are preparing for their first foray into the Europa League and are expected to be busy during this transfer window and have so far already snapped up Spanish midfielder Jose Canas, but they have apparently ben knocked back in a bid for Standard Liege’s 19-year-old striker Michy Batshuayi.
Giving depth to their attacking options appears to be Michael Laudrup’s priority this summer, with Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis and Anderlecht’s Dieumerci Mbokani also reported to be targets.
And though they have seen little action so far, Jenkins insists that there are a number of deals going on behind the scenes.
“We are working day and night and there is a lot going on behind the scenes,” he told the South Wales Evening Post.
“There are a lot of options and a lot of discussions have taken place.
“We have talked to many clubs, and in some cases we have put certain bids in for certain players. But some clubs prefer to wait to see what other offers come in.
“If you get as far as the dealing with the player or the agents, they are happy to sit and wait in some cases too. It’s not just us finding that, it’s the same for a lot of Premier League clubs.”
