Vital Swansea were asked to answer some questions for Metro Online about Swansea City's Summer transfer activity.
What positions do your club need to strengthen?
Swansea City will need to strengthen in all areas for what will be a very tough season next year in the Premier League.
We've lost our number one goalkeeper, we risk losing two or three defenders (Taylor, Rangel and possibly Williams) and we've also seen Pratley leave as well as Chelsea loanee striker Fabio Borini.
Who would you like to buy?
A combination of young and experienced players. Some who have played at the highest level and those who are looking to prove themselves.
Marcos Senna would be a fantastic signing from Villareal, he's been our main target while Rodgers will also be looking at some loan signings such as Spurs' Steven Caulker and Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand.
Who do you think you`ll buy?
It's anyone's guess really. Having lost some key players already and possibly more, Brendan Rodgers will probably be looking to buy five or even six new players. Hopefully we can tempt Senna to sign while I'm sure the manager will use his Chelsea connections to sign some of their youngsters on loan.
Who do you think will leave/who do you want to leave?
Neil Taylor wants to leave as Newcastle and Everton are interested, while Angel Rangel may also decide to leave as his contract has expired. I wouldn't want either to go but Taylor has shown a keen desire to move on already. There are quite a few players in our big squad that we need to release, possibly as many as 10.
