Swansea Showing Interest in Tottenham & Sunderland Strikers?


Over the course of the weekend, rumours have surfaced that Swansea City are still on the lookout for another striker and Tottenham Hotspur’s Emmanuel Adebayor and Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher have both emerged as potential suitors.

Even though Garry Monk recently insisted that there’s unlikely to be any more players coming in or leaving the club before the start of the new campaign, both Fletcher and Adebayor have emerged as reported targets for the Swans.

The Mirror reckons Swansea are plotting a £4m move for Sunderland’s Fletcher, while the Daily Star are suggesting that the Swans are set to swoop for the unpredictable Spurs man Adebayor.

The Tottenham forward has been at White Hart Lane since joining from Manchester City in 2012. Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly keen to get him off his wage bill, but the Swans are unlikely to make a move for the former Arsenal man due to him being the same type of player as they’ve already got in Bafetimbi Gomis and Eder.

As for the Fletcher, this one looks the more likely of the two. The Scotland international has endured a tough time since his £12m move to the Stadium of Light from Wolves in 2012. However, at present, both rumours are just paper talk, and Monk has already revealed that he’s happy with his squad.
