Update emerges on Swansea City’s potential transfer pursuit of 28-year-old

Published

Swansea City are not close to sealing a deal for Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Marko Marosi ahead of the summer transfer window, according to a report from Wales Online.

The 28-year-old has been one of the Shrews’ bright sparks this term, playing in all 46 league games this term and recording a respectable 14 clean sheets in the process as he played a big part in keeping his side away from danger.

Also conceding just 51 goals during the 2021/22 campaign, he may be the subject of interest from other clubs in the EFL when the upcoming window opens next month and the In the Stiffs podcast seemed to report that a deal was all but concluded for the Slovakian.

What date was Russell Martin appointed at Swansea?

The Swans may be in need of a goalkeeper this summer with Steven Benda’s future at the Swansea.com Stadium unclear when he returns to Wales from his loan spell at Peterborough United.

As well as this, it has been confirmed this week that Ben Hamer will be released on the expiration of his contract in the summer along with Korey Smith, with Andy Fisher potentially needing more competition for his starting spot between the sticks in the coming months.

However, Wales Online sources believe a move isn’t wrapped up for Marosi, who has recently come out and expressed his commitment to the cause.

The Verdict:

If Marosi was offered the chance to go to Swansea, it would be interesting to see whether he would make that move or not because in the third tier, he is getting a lot of game time and he wouldn’t be guaranteed that until Russell Martin.

Nonetheless, an injury to Fisher could be a game-changer for the 28-year-old and there’s every chance he could displace the ex-MK Dons shot-stopper on merit, so how much confidence he has in himself could determine his future.

At 28 though and with plenty of time left in his career, he should prioritise his playing time and wait for an offer from a higher tier that will provide him with regular first-team football, something that will come his way sooner rather than later if he can continue to shine.

The goalkeeper could establish himself as a real hero in Shropshire before moving on to another side and considering he only moved to the third-tier side last summer, he may be willing to stay for at least another season now he’s settled.

Relegation next season would probably see him move away though unless he also has a poor season, though the Shrews should have the ingredients to stay up again under Steve Cotterill.
