Swans swoop: Spain winger Hernandez poised for £5million move

The Valencia forward fancies the Premier League and knows Swansea boss Laudrup from their days at Getafe – watch him in action here

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has made an audacious move to sign Spain winger Pablo Hernandez.

The Valencia star, 27, fancies a move to the Premier League, and while the Swans have had a £4million bid rejected the La Liga outfit have told them to come back with a £5m offer.

If Michael Laudrup could pull off a move to sign Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez then it would represent something of a coup whilst simultaneously displaying the usefulness of having a living legend as the manager of your club.

The Danish boss was of course a huge playing legend and has great experience of La Liga and will be more than aware of the ability Hernandez possesses and perhaps the chance to play under the Liberty Stadium boss is a carrot to help secure a move of this gravitas.

Though Laudrup has seen Joe Allen leave and faces a fight to keep one or two other members of his first team at the club the former Real Mallorca boss has brought in a few clever signings. Snapping up Michu from Rayo Vallecano for just £1.7m could prove the bargain of the summer and the arrivals of Chico and Jonathan de Guzman certainly add quality to the Swans squad.

Hernandez has completed four solid seasons at the Mestalla and is an experienced able campaigner and well worth a £5m bid.
