Swans linked with prolific Blackburn striker.
Swansea City have been linked with a move to sign Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes as they look to replace the recently-departed Wilfried Bony, according to the Daily Telegraph.
With Bony moving to Manchester City this January, Garry Monk has some thinking to do upfront as he faces the difficult task of replacing the Premier League’s leading goalscorer for the calendar year 2014.
Swansea already have summer signing Bafetimbi Gomis waiting in the wings, with the Frenchman initially struggling to get into the side due to Bony’s presence, but it may be that the Welsh outfit will also consider making signings before the end of the transfer window.
Rhodes has impressed Premier League sides in the past, with the Scottish international enjoying a highly prolific record in the lower leagues, particular in his time with Huddersfield Town.
The striker once scored 40 goals in a season for his previous club, and also has a record of 58 in 110 appearances for his current side, showing he could surely do the business at a bigger club if given the chance.
