A January move for this 27-y/o would make perfect sense for Swansea City

Swansea City have endured a really disappointing first-half of the Sky Bet Championship campaign, since their relegation from the Premier League last term.

With just two wins in their last eight games, Graham Potter has already identified a couple of transfer targets that will help lift them up the table, and hopefully clinch what now seems an unlikely play-off finish.

One player that the Welsh club have been linked with is Norwich City’s Nelson Oliveira, whose time at Carrow Road is set to come to an end this month, having failed to make a single appearance for the Canaries this season.

A move for the Portuguese forward would make huge sense from a Swansea perspective – the goals from Oli McBurnie have dried up having failed to find the net in six games, and he definitely needs some help in the final third of the pitch.

Having netted 20 times in 42 starts for the Canaries, Oliveira has proven that he is a clinical goalscorer on his day when given a consistent run of games, and is bound to be hungry to prove a point if he is to depart Carrow Road in January.

At 6-foot-1, he possesses a real physical prowess, pace and fight up front, and would give Swansea a different dimension to what the likes of Wilfried Bony offer going forward. He is a player you need if you want your fortunes to turn around – Swansea need to make him their number one priority in January.
