BBC Sport is reporting that Swansea City are set to sign Spanish striker Jonathan Soriano.
The Swans are set to travel abroad to meet a player's representative and while the club aren't willing to reveal the identify of one of Brendan Rodgers' transfer targets, BBC Sport believe it is Barcelona B frontman Soriano.
The 25 year-old was top scorer in Spain's second tier last season with 26 goals and he also attracted interest from fellow Premier League side Wigan Athletic.
The under-21 international scored 32 goals in 37 games in all competitions last year, and that also attracted attention from Udinese and Marseille.
Chairman Huw Jenkins told the Official Site:
'I will be meeting with the representative of a player that we feel will be perfect for Swansea City.
'He has the talent that would fit in to the style in which we believe in, and we are hopeful of him coming here.
'By flying out to meet his representative, I hope we can agree a deal within the next few days. We will talk about what we want to achieve as a club, and what the player wishes to achieve too.
'After the arrival of Danny Graham and the recent news regarding Steven Caulker - along with Angel Rangel committing his future to the club - this would add to the feelgood factor around the club.
'We are determined to continue the good work put in over the last few years, and we will do it the way which is best for Swansea City.'
