Swansea City manager Graham Potter may struggle to hold onto his captain Leroy Fer, with both French club Lille and Turkish giants Fenerbahce keen on the 29-year-old midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
Fer’s contract is up in the summer and he could be allowed to go ,as Swansea continue to restructure following Premier League relegation last season.
Should Swansea sell or keep him?
“They’re in a very tough position.
“With his contract running down this is the last chance to get a fee.
“However, losing him would dent their outside play-off hopes. It depends on the offer but I’d be tempted to wait and hope he can play his part in a late play-off push.”
“Sell, cash in.
“Fer is a decent player, but he’s not ‘new Swansea’ in my opinion.
“They could reinvest the cash for a serious top two assault next season.”
“It’s a tough decision.
“Fer is likely to be one of the highest earners at Swansea and part of them must be tempted to sell him this month.
“But he is the club captain and is a solid player to rely upon, and if they sold him, it wouldn’t go down well with the club’s supporters.
“It’s a tricky one.”
“He’s a big player for the Swans, but the financial implications of any deal could be pivotal to any agreement.
“Fer would still be one of the club’s highest earners after their stint in the Premier League, and the move could aid balancing the books.
“It is a tough call, but without the Dutch midfielder, who has played 23 times this year, I think they would survive.”
