Striker A Priority For Swansea City Boss Sousa

Striker A Priority For Swansea City Boss Sousa

Swansea City boss Paulo Sousa says signing a striker is now his priority, after losing Jason Scotland who joined Wigan Athletic for around £2m.

The 38 year-old wants more goalscorers in the team after he told Wales Online that 90% of our goals last season came from just 2 players - Jason Scotland and Jordi Gomez, who are both at Wigan.

Sousa told Wales Online:

"I know the players I want to come in,"

"But it has to be a good deal for the club and the squad.

"A striker is my priority now. We are looking hard and we have already opened talks with some players that have the characteristics we are looking for.

"We are close to finalising the deals. I hope it will be sorted in a few days so they can start training with us and get integrated into our ideas.

"Some players need more time than others. But we are looking for players we can adapt in a short time."

"The other players that are already here need to score more goals. We need to have other goalscorers in the team. Last season 90 per cent of the goals came from two players and we need to find alternatives."


Some Swansea City fans have shown their concern over a lack of signings this Summer but Sousa insists that talks are in place about bringing in new players.

He also talked about Bodde's possible departure:

"Ferrie is an important player for us, one of the best passers we have,"

"He is also a real threat shooting from distance and that`s something for our opponents to worry about.

"At the moment he is our player and I need to look after him like all the other players."


When asked if he's confident he'll stay: "I don`t see it any other way. I see it as my job to help him become a better player."

I look forward to seeing who's on the list... But as above, can't wait we do really need someone to put the ball in the back of the net now a certain club has taken our goal-scorers.
