1 winner and 1 loser if Swansea City poach Championship winger in the summer

Published

on

Swansea City are one club thought to be interested in moving for Benfica winger Chris Willock during the summer transfer window following his impressive form with Huddersfield Town.

Willock joined the Terriers on loan during the January window and has found the net once in seven appearances, bouncing back from a disappointing spell with West Brom in the opening half of the campaign.

If the Swans are to land the 22-year-old’s services, however, they will need to fend off competition from arch-rivals Cardiff City first, according to the report from Football Insider.

But if they are successful, here is one player who would benefit from the deal and one who would lose out…

Andre Ayew

The winger has been one of the Swans more consistent performers this season, impressing both out wide and in a striking role.

He would surely, therefore, benefit from the arrival of another versatile attacking player, capable of deployment on either wing as well as in attacking midfield.

It could leave Ayew free to fill the striking role in Cooper’s set up on a more regular basis, especially considering there are few other options currently available to operate there.

What is Swansea's current shirt sponsor for the 2019/20 campaign?

Bersant Celina

It has been a lacklustre campaign from the Kosovan thus far, contributing just two goals and three assists in 30 appearances.

He probably has the most to lose from Willocks potential arrival as well. At the moment, Celina is that man capable of playing in an array of positions in the attacking third, but were Willock to arrive that would be in jeapordy.

At 23, he still has a lot to offer the club but he could find himself bumped down the pecking order if this deal materialises.
