Swansea City Transfers: Celtic makes an offer to the outgoing star and the Swans face a stumbling block in the striker race


Here are the latest transfer headlines from Liberty Stadium for Monday June 7th.

Celtic eyed Ayew

Scottish giant Celtic is reportedly interested in switching for Andre Ayew this summer.

The Ghanaian is a free agent after seeing his contract at Liberty Stadium and it is assumed he is currently back home before deciding on his next move.

The striker, who scored 17 goals for the Swans last season, has already received a number of offers ahead of the coming season.

One such offer comes from Celtic, who are looking for a potential replacement for Odsonne Edouard, with the striker increasingly likely to leave Celtic Park this summer, according to GhanaSoccerNet.

Henry update appears

Swansea are interested in a move from Leuven striker Thomas Henry but could be excluded from a move this summer.

Henry, previously linked to Leicester, scored 21 goals for his club last season and is on the radar at Liberty Stadium.

Reports in Belgium over the weekend indicated the Swans were getting closer to a possible move, but with Swansea unlikely to be spending the money this summer, there are already doubts about the feasibility of a potential deal.

Club’s sources haven’t categorically ruled out a move, but there is a feeling the Frenchman will likely be out of his price range this summer.

Peybernes back on the radar

Swansea are also reported to have shown interest in French center-back Mathieu Peybernes.

The Almeria defender was linked to a move to Nottingham Forest and the Swans last summer window, and sources from Spain claim South Wales are still interested.

It is believed, however, that there are several other options on the table with the player himself presumably interested in moving to Real Zaragoza where he recently had a reasonably successful loan period.

According to the Spanish newspaper AS, he is negotiating an “amicable termination” of his one-year contract with Almeria and hopes to sign a two-year contract with Zaragoza.

Daniel James makes Man United admission

Former Swansea winger Daniel James admits he’s not in top form for Manchester United just yet.

James made only 26 appearances for United last season and has seen numerous speculations about his future at Old Trafford, with Leeds United among his longtime admirers.

The winger flew to Baku with Wales this week and is expected to play a key role in Rob Page’s plans for Euro 2020.

And speaking to the club’s official website, James admits he’s determined to have a much bigger impact at Old Trafford next season and believes he’s already doing better.

“I develop every single game. I am learning.

“I think about every game and season that I’ve played, whether I’ve played zero minutes, whether I play all the games, I think I’m always learning.

“For me, I’m still a long way from my potential and just want to keep improving.”
