Swansea City are hoping to persuade Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter to join the club this summer, according to a report by Alan Nixon.
The Swans are hopeful of landing the Irish midfielder, who has been a regular for the Cherries over the past few seasons with some impressive performances, is not guaranteed a start now under manager Eddie Howe, and new Swansea manager Graham Potter is hoping to convince Arter to make the move to Wales.
Arter signed for Bournemouth from non-league Woking back in 2010 and has been on a journey with the club as they have risen from the bottom of the pyramid to the Premier League,
The 28-year-old has 13 caps for his country and would be no doubt be an excellent signing for any Championship club, with Swansea one of few with the funds to convince the midfielder to make the drop down into the second tier.
Arter has made just shy of 250 appearances for the Cherries and would leave the club with a heavy heart if forced to do so having been with the club so long. However, Swansea are expected to among the teams challenging for promotion next season, and he could well relish the chance to spearhead that charge.
