Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has re-assured the fans that they're hard at work trying to strengthen the squad for the new season.
With on-going speculation surrounding manager Michael Laudrup's future at the Liberty Stadium, it has left us fans wondering how things are progressing with transfers.
Has our transfer activity been put on hold to put things right between Laudrup and the board? Has our pulling power in attracting players become under threat due to the speculation? You would think not, as Jenkins is keen to stress that Laudrup is staying, and between them, they're hard at work behind the scenes to boost the squad.
Whilst not revealing targets, which is always the best policy, Jenkins says that a number of bids have been made for several targets. A proven striker appears to be the club's top priority this Summer.
Jenkins told the Evening Post:
'We are working day and night and there is a lot going on behind the scenes,'
'There are a lot of options and a lot of discussions have taken place.
'We have talked to many clubs, and in some cases we have put certain bids in for certain players.
'But some clubs prefer to wait to see what other offers come in.
'If you get as far as the dealing with the player or the agents, they are happy to sit and wait in some cases too.
'It's not just us finding that, it's the same for a lot of Premier League clubs.'
At the moment, Lyon forward Gomis appears to be Swansea's main goalscoring target, as the club remain hopeful that a deal can be made - which would easily break the existing record of £5.55m paid for Pablo Hernandez. The striker, who scored 20 goals in 40 games last season, could cost at least £8m, but Lyon are willing to listen to offers to ease their financial troubles.
