Swansea City manager Steve Cooper will be hoping he can get back to winning ways after a disappointing series of results, seeing the Swans drop to 11th in the Championship, though only three points adrift of the play-off places.
With Cooper looking to freshen up his squad, the Swans are looking to sign the young Liverpool duo of Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster, who could be allowed out on loan in January by the Reds, as they look to gain some valuable game-time, according to Goal Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones on Twitter.
So could the Liverpool pair be a good double signing for Swansea?
“This would be a cracking deal for the club.
“I know some Swansea fans are keen to avoid more loan deals but I think when players of this calibre become available it would make no sense to turn them down.
“Both Jones and Brewster will be itching to play regular first-team football having impressed on occasion in recent cup games and Swansea would be the perfect place.
“Cooper is a specialist in working with young players and getting the best out of them so it sounds like a deal which would suit everyone perfectly.”
“These are the sort of signings that Swansea need.
“Steve Cooper has done a good job since taking over but it’s clear the side are lacking that quality in the final third – which is understandable.
“They lost their two best attacking players, Dan James and Oli McBurnie, in the summer and they weren’t really replaced.
“It’s going to be a struggle to get players of that calibre to come in but Jones and Brewster are both exciting young talents that could thrive in Wales. This would be a real coup for the Swans.”
Could Jones and Brewster be a good double signing for Swansea?
“A very good double signing for the Swans, who are in desperate need of reinforcements to bolster what is an overly thin squad at the Liberty Stadium and in turn address their recent poor form.
“Brewster has struggled for goals since breaking through at Liverpool, so a loan move to a competitive competition like the Championship could well get the best out of the young striker.
“Jones would also add an extra option for Steve Cooper to utilise, whilst he would also add some more depth to the midfield, thus providing cover for injuries that could be picked up by Jay Fulton or George Byers.
“With both players out of favour at their parent club, these moves seem like a very realistic possibility and I fully expect there to be some incomings at Swansea, with Cooper having spoken of how thin his squad is in the past.”
