28-goal striker on the list: 5 players that Swansea should submit enquiries for next week



Graham Potter has had a relatively successful start to life as Swansea manager, but he will need to navigate successfully through the January transfer window if his side are to improve.

The Swans are currently mid-table and sat in 12th position in the Championship table after 26 matches – seven points off a place in the play-offs.

If Potter wants to make some magic at the Liberty Stadium, then he will need to beef up his squad to shake the personnel currently at his disposal up and get them pushing further up the league.

With that said here are FIVE players that Swansea should submit enquiries for next week.

Andy King

The former Swansea loanee has been told he can leave parent club Leicester and could be a player that interests Potter to add some experience to his midfield.

The 30-year-old hasn’t played a league game for the Foxes this season and would be available for a nominal fee if anything at all.

He would add much-needed Championship experience to the Swansea side if he were to join.

Lawrence Shankland

The Ayr striker could be a potentially game-changing signing for Swansea City, and he is a player that Potter must enquire about next week as the transfer window’s closing chimes tick ever closer.

The 23-year-old has 28 goals in 26 appearances for the Scottish side this season, with his current team second in the Scottish Championship.

Getting a player of his goal-scoring ability should be deemed as a priority next week.

Nelson Oliveira

The Norwich striker’s situation at Carrow Road has not changed, and he is still ridiculously out of favour.

Bringing a player, formerly of Swansea, back to the club, could be a shrewd move and he will give Potter’s side vast experience in the final third, as well as alleviating some of the pressure on top scorer Oli McBurnie.

Timothy Castagne

The 23-year-old Atalanta defender could be what the Swans need to become more resolute at the back.

Mike van der Hoorn is currently the main man at the back for Potter’s side with Cameron Carter-Vickers forming a decent partnership next to him.

But to progress and develop, getting Castagne into the Liberty Stadium could well be a masterstroke if the move comes off.

Elias Sorensen

The Newcastle striker is highly rated at St James’ Park and with chances in the first team not looking likely this season, a loan move could well be the way forward for the 19-year-old.

Swansea need more options in attack and adding the young Magpie could be what is needed at the Liberty Stadium, and he is a payer that Potter must look to inquire about in the coming week.
