Rosenberg in Laudrup’s sight as new Swansea boss begins £15m spree

Swansea want to land Sweden striker Markus Rosenberg. The striker, 29, is a free agent after five years at Werder Bremen and could be the first signing for new manager Michael Laudrup, who has been allocated £15m for new players.
Southampton and Reading are also believed to be interested.

The arrival of Michael Laudrup may well make it easier for Swansea City to attract top European names and a move to bring in some added firepower to the Liberty Stadium squad is a wise one. Markus Rosenberg managed a relatively healthy total of 53 goals in his four seasons at Werder Bremen, having spent one of his years at the Bundesliga club sent out on loan at Racing Santander, and given he is a free agent it’s a move well worth making.

The 29 year old has the experience and physical stature to do well in the English top tier.

Last term striker Danny Graham worked well in fits and starts but the Swans had to rely heavily on goals coming from wide area with Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer offering very able support. There may be even more reason to make a move for Rosenberg if the Welsh club fail to land Gylfi Sigurdsson on a permanent basis.
