Michael Laudrup already plotting Swansea transfers

Swansea manager Michael LaudrupSwansea manager Michael Laudrup has revealed that he already making plans for the summer transfer window.

The Swans boss has enjoyed a successful first season in South Wales, guiding his team into the upper half of the Premier League and lifting the Capital One Cup at Wembley.

As a result of their achievements, the club will take part in next season’s Europa League, a tournament which could potentially stretch their squad to breaking point.

But, Laudrup says that he is already planning new arrivals to build on the talent he already has:

“Right through January I was asked about which players might be coming or going,” he is quoted by Sky Sports.

“But just because February 1 came, that didn’t mean we could be relieved and that we could stop working because it never stops.

“We are already working for next season. We worked right through the last month and that will continue.”

However, the Dane says that he is hoping for quality rather than quantity in terms of playing staff:

“Being in the Europa League doesn’t mean we’ll work with a larger squad because I don’t believe in having too big a squad.”

Laudrup refused to name any specific targets, but one man the club are reportedly keen to strike a deal for is Jonathan De Guzman.

The Dutch midfielder is currently on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Villarreal, and it is believed that the possibility of a permanent switch is being explored.
