Opinion: Swansea should make swift signing of Eugen Polanski to solve injury crisis

Swansea are currently in the midst of a midfield injury crisis, and boss Graham Potter must sign former Poland international and current free-agent Eugen Polanski to make a quick fix.

What’s the situation?

The Swans only have one fully fit senior midfielder in their squad at the moment in Matt Grimes, as Tom Carroll (hip), club captain Leroy Fer (groin) and Jay Fulton (head) have all been sidelined with injuries recently.

Despite this, Potter’s side are currently sat in sixth in the Championship table having won three games, drawn three more and lost just one at home to Bristol City.

With the Swans now looking exceptionally light in central areas though it would be wise for Potter and the hierarchy to delve into the market of free-agents that are available to provide cover as his main men make their way back to full fitness.

Quick fix

Defensive-midfielder Polanski is currently available on a free transfer after leaving the German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer following a five-year stint at the club.

The 32-year-old also has 19 caps for his country and is clearly experienced enough to come in and do a job for the Championship side as they look to sustain their push for promotion straight back to the Premier League.

With so many injuries at present and with Polanski available on a free, it would be simple for Potter to offer the former Getafe man a short-term deal as a quick fix.
