Swansea boss targets striker swoop

Michael Laudrup (Swansea manager)Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has revealed that he is hoping to sign another striker before the transfer window closes.

The Dane has already broken the Swans’ club transfer record to bring Wilfried Bony to the Liberty Stadium this summer, but is not yet content with his current attacking options.

The Ivorian is accompanied by star forward Michu, but the Spaniard is, by trade, an attacking midfielder.

Swansea have been linked with a number of forwards in recent weeks, and Laudrup says that he is hopeful of concluding a deal before the deadline passes.

“I’ve been asked about a lot of players and I’ve always said we want one more striker with different characteristics to Wilfried Bony and Michu,” he told Sky Sports.

“We will add one tomorrow. We’ve had five, six, seven players linked and one will join, but not more than one.

“We have to go into the last day (of the window) having not done everything which is not ideal because it will be a crazy day, but hopefully we’ll finish in time.

“I don’t want to go into details but let’s say we hope to finish it as quickly as possible.”

Two players to have been strongly linked with moves to South Wales are Peter Odemwingie of West Brom and Getafe’s Alvaro Vazquez.

Laudrup is keen to bolster his squad in an attempt to deal with the added fixtures of the club’s Europa League campaign – a set of circumstances brought about by their Capital One Cup triumph last season.

Do Swansea need another striker? Or are there other areas that need strengthening?
