Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed that the club are looking into the possibility of signing another striker this summer, Sky Sports reports.

Manager Michael Laudrup said recently that his squad was almost complete and needed only one or two minor tweaks before the finishing touches could be complete.

Wilfried Bony has already been added from Vitesse Arnhem, smashing the club’s transfer record at £12.5 million to help ensure that the goalscoring burden was eased off of last season’s main man for the goals, Michu.

“There are so many options and names around, and there’s a fine line as you wait to see what players might become available from a top club, whether it’s here or abroad,” Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.

“Let’s not forget that in 90 per cent of our games, if they are fit, Michu or Wilfried Bony will be starting up front.

“Bringing in a second or third striker will just be an added security in case things change.”

The chairman also said captain Ashley Williams is going nowhere, despite the reported interest from Arsenal.

“I don’t know where the stories come from – every year it’s the same. Somebody feeds information to somebody, maybe they are trying to create a story or create a move out of nothing. But I have had no calls. Ash has grown with us,” added Jenkins.

“We have had no phone calls about any of our players and we hope that continues.”
