Swansea to bid £12.5 million for lethal marksman

Swansea City are reportedly readying a £12.5 million move for Burnley centre forward Andre Gray, according to The Daily Mail.

The Welsh side have struggled to score goals since the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City 12 months ago, with no reliable options to lead the line at Alan Curtis’ disposal.

As such the Liberty Stadium outfit are being linked with a move for a centre forward this month and have already seen a move for Napoli and Italy forward Manolo Gabbiadini turned down apparently.

Gray has been in blistering form for the Turf Moor outfit this term in the Championship, with 13 goals in 20 league games for the former Brentford forward.

It seems to be only a matter of time before the 24-year-old ends up in the Premier League, with his ability to score consistently being recognised across the country.

Swansea have had a forgettable campaign to date and are embroiled in a relegation scrap currently.
