The Swans had been one of the interested parties in the former Celta Vigo man before he left to move to Anfield during the summer, and have had to watch as the striker has struggled for form since recovering from a thigh injury that kept him out of the side to compound hi misery.

The 26-year-old has yet to find the back of the net in seven appearances this term, and has found himself sliding further down the pecking order at Anfield as the season progresses.

Several La Liga sides are said to be interested in bringing him back home on a short term deal, but Michu has confessed that he and the Spanish contingent at Swansea would welcome him with open arms at the Liberty Stadium.

“We (the Spanish players) are hoping he can come here on loan,” Michu said.

“It would be a pleasure to play with him. Iago has had injuries, but he has quality. He deserves to play in the Premier League.

“He has been unlucky. At Liverpool, they have Luis Suarez and (Daniel) Sturridge, who have scored a lot of goals. Suarez is, along with Diego Costa and others, one of the best strikers in Europe.”
