The Transfer Series: Players Swansea Need To Sign

Swansea’s Premier League campaign has been abysmal, to say the least. Swansea has picked up just one point thus far and is currently 19th on the League table, level on points (5) with Sunderland who now occupies the bottom of the standings. Swansea need to sign new players to avoid the drop to Championship.

The January transfer window is set to offer new boss Bob Bradley a way out of the bottom three as he’ll be able to bring in some fresh legs to help in the fight against relegation.

A lot of Swansea players have been scrutinised for their poor performances in the wake of the club’s dreadful form hence some reshuffling is expected to take place when the transfer window opens up in January.

Following Bob Bradley’s arrival many doubts were raised about his ability to keep Swansea from getting relegated, he’s already begun to prove his doubters right. He’ll be looking towards the winter window to sign players capable of getting the team back on track and we'll be taking a look at some of the players Swansea need to sign;

Dimitar Berbatov

The last two seasons have not been favourable for Swansea regarding their strikers they’ve lost Bony, Gomis and Ayew – Fernando Llorente currently spearheads the Swans’ attack, but he’s been below par so far.

Dimitar Berbatov might be making his way to Swansea in January with Bob Bradley admitting that he is a potential transfer target.

Berbatov’s arrival could galvanise Swansea in a bid to lead them out of the bottom three as the Bulgarian striker has a wealth of experience in the Premier League having played for Manchester United and Tottenham in the past.

He’s got a real poacher’s instinct and would be an excellent addition to Swansea’s squad and be seeing as he’s a free agent following his time in the Greek superleague, luring him back to the Premier League might be relatively easy for the Swans.

Tom Carroll ‘loan.'

Spurs’ Tom Carroll is currently struggling for game time in North London and could be available for loan in January.

He made some cameos for Tottenham last season in which he looked decent on the ball – and with the likes of Jack Cork and Leon Britton failing to prove their worth under Bob Bradley, Carroll could very well come in to offer some stability to the Swansea's midfield.

It’s highly unlikely that Swansea will be able to acquire a good midfielder within Europe’s top five leagues due to the uncertainty surrounding the team’s Premier League status.

A loan move for a player of Carroll’s ilk, who’s keen on getting ample game-time is more or less the best Swansea can do in the transfer window regarding recruiting a midfielder with experience playing for a big side.

Steven Caulker

Caulker could make his way back to the Liberty Stadium in January with the Swans currently in dire need of a centre-back. Jordi Amat, Mike Van der Hoon, Alfie Mawson and Neil Taylor have all looked disorganised in defence, thus, highlighting the need to acquire a new defender.

Ashley Williams was Swansea’s rock in the heart of their back four, but his exit has seen the Swans’ backline undergo a massive decline which has contributed greatly to the team’s poor run of form.

Caulker, who currently plays for QPR in the Championship could help bolster Swansea’s defence as he’s got loads of Premier League experience under his belt having played for Spurs, Cardiff, Southampton, Liverpool and of course Swansea from 2009 to date.
