Loads of Sheffield Wednesday fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as reports claim Swansea are eyeing a swoop for Fernando Forestieri.
According to HITC, Swansea are ready to raid Sheffield Wednesday for Forestieri as they look to mount an immediate promotion charge.
The Swans are looking for a marquee signing that can add some goals and dynamism to their side, and a fully fit Forestieri is a force to be reckoned with.
According to the report, the Owls’ quest to trim their wage bill has left the 28 year-old’s future “uncertain”, with Jos Luhukay being forced to sell before he can buy.
Forestieri would catch quite a significant fee, so it would certainly help Luhukay’s attempts to add to the squad.However, it’s hard to believe any players the Owls bring in will be as effective as Forestieri can be, so fans are understandably bashing this transfer rumour.

Coming from HITC it’s most likely made up crap but if it was true then we’ve got to be talking not a penny less than £20Million.

Got to use maddison transfer to Leicester as a guide. 24 million. Foresteri is just as good a player puts him in 20 million bracket #swfc

Selling Forestieri to a Championship rival makes sense from a financial point of view but might already condemn us to a poor season. Chansiri needs to look elsewhere to make savings in my view 🤞🏻
