Swansea City manager Garry Monk is reportedly ready to swoop for Middlesbrough striker Marvin Emnes.
Emnes spent the second half of the season on loan at Swansea, scoring one goal in seven League games for the Swans.
However manager Garry Monk has warned the midfielder that he must improve on his fitness if he wants to return to the Liberty Stadium.
Monk told the South Wales Echo.
“I’ve talked to Marvin about how I feel going forward.
“I like him, but he needs to improve on a lot of things – his fitness for one.
“It is a case of the club speaking to his representative and seeing what happens.
“There’s no definites here and there just yet but we will see in the coming weeks.”
Middlesbrough are more than likely to offload Emnes, as well as Lukas Jutkiewicz, who spent a successful period on loan at Bolton Wanderers, scoring seven goals in 21 League games for Dougie Freedman’s side.
