Wales Online believes that Jordi Lopez has moved a step closer to joining Swansea City. Guttermouth '
Chairman Huw Jenkins joined Paulo Sousa in Oporto Portugal this week to hold more talks with the former QPR midfielder about joining the club.
The Wales on Sunday understands that Sousa wants to make Jordi Lopez is first signing since taking over at the Liberty Stadium, having worked with the Spaniard at QPR for 3 months last season.
There is concern and worry amongst some Swansea City fans as we still wait for the club to strengthen the squad for the new campaign.
Huw Jenkins has ensured the supporters that signings will be made, but Sousa will want to assess what he has first before before deciding what types of players he needs.
We asked Vital QPR readers for their views on Jordi Lopez, here's what some of them said:
'I thought Jordi added a touch of class to our midfield where it was desperately needed last season. Gavin Mahon and Mikele Leigertwood were underperforming and inconsistent and he gave us that unknown quantity in the holding role. He would sit deep and pick out passes, a la Beckham against Andorra, without ever truly seeming too involved in the fixture in my opinion.
His goal against Bristol City was classy, he tried a similar free-kick a few minutes earlier but it was thwarted by Basso. He had another go and planted it to pin point perfection into the top right hand corner, beautiful dip and venom in the strike.
