Swansea City Boss Michael Laudrup Confirms Striker Chase

Swans boss wants another striker.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has confirmed that he wants to add one more striker to his squad before the transfer window closes next week, Sky Sports reports.

He has admitted that West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie and Getafe front man Alvaro Vazquez are both players that he has been keeping tabs on recently.

Troubled forward Odemwingie has been regularly linked with a move to the Swans since the start of the summer, and reports in Spain have suggested the Welsh side have submitted a £2.5m bid for Spanish U21 player Vazquez.

Laudrup said: “I don’t want to go into details too much. I have told you many times the position I am looking for and the player I need, someone with different qualities and characteristics.

“Vazquez is a young player and a little different. He is a young forward who plays wide and he has the characteristics we were talking about, like Odemwingie.

“I imagine that’s why his name came up, because they both fit into the profile that we are looking for.

“I can’t say that we are putting in bids, just that we are talking to different persons and we have alternative possibilities.

“The only thing I can confirm is that we have nothing near completion. On the other hand, when do you know you are close? You never know.”
