Swansea target Spartak Moscow star

Swansea are considering a January move for Spartak Moscow ace Jose Manuel Jurado, according to talkSPORT.

Michael Laudrup is hoping to add some reinforcements this month, with his side currently on a wretched run of form that has seen them sucked into the relegation battle.

The South Wales club are without a win in their last eight Premier League games, and are also without last season’s top scorer Michu, who has been missing with injury.

Sunday saw them suffer another home defeat, this time at the hands of Tottenham – a result which means they have managed just two Premier League wins in front of their home fans all season.

Laudrup revealed in December that he hoped to add new faces this month, and reports in Russia suggest he will try and tempt Jurado to the Liberty Stadium.

The 27-year-old – who started his career at Real Madrid – only joined Spartak permanently in the summer from Schalke, after an initial loan spell with the Russian club.

Jurado has managed 44 appearances for Spartak, scoring nine goals in that time and providing six assists.

Should Swansea complete the signing this month, it would take Laudrup’s contingent of Spanish players up to nine.
