Laudrup wants more firepower.
Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is hoping to add two new strikers to his ranks after prized asset Michu confirmed that he would be staying with the club next season, The Express reports.
Laudrup is reportedly eyeing deals for Chelsea’s on loan striker Romelu Lukaku and Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas in a bid to take some of the pressure off of Michu and add some much needed depth ahead of their first foray into the Europa League.
Michu confirmed his desire to stay by saying: “I’m happy on the pitch and in this team. Swansea fans do not need to worry. I am very happy at the club, and I want to say thank you to everyone at the club because we have all enjoyed this season.”
“I’ve seen articles on the internet, but I’m very happy here.”
Swansea could face a battle to land Lukaku, though, as the powerful Belgian has enjoyed a successful campaign on loan with West Bromwich Albion and is expected back at his parent club this summer. However, with the resurgence in form of Fernando Torres and the expected arrival of Edinson Cavani, the 20-year-old could find himself shipped back out on a short term deal.
Aspas has also been identified as a possible target after bagging ten goals in 28 games for Celta who are currently in their first campaign back in the Spanish top flight after winning promotion last term.
