If Paul Clement and Swansea City go down, it will not be without bringing in more talent for the fight.

The Premier League’s relegation strugglers, who fired Francesco Guidolin and Bob Bradley between the summer and January transfer windows, appear close to adding an exciting attacking talent.

Wales Online has the report that Swansea will purchase PSV Eindhoven winger Luciano Narsingh for a cut-rate price of around $5 million.  The same outlet quotes same price for Norwich City back Martin Olsson, who has almost 150 Premier League appearances with the Canaries and Blackburn.

Narsingh, 26, has 16 caps and four goals for the Netherlands, and has been an effective contributor to PSV since arriving from Heerenveen in 2012.

Swansea needs backs more than anything, so the Olsson signing feels more pressing, but someone to take the pressure off Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente is a big step for the Welsh side. We’re sure Bradley and Guidolin are envious of the addition, but both are still minor purchase (in terms of price, not value). Let’s see who else arrives at Swansea, but this is promising.
