Laudrup looking for striker

Michael Laudrup admits he is hoping to bring another striker

into his Swansea City ranks during the summer transfer window.

After a frustrating start to his 2013 recruitment drive, Laudrup

has been able to make six additions so far.

He feels one more should have the Swans well set to build on

their exploits from last season – where they secured a top-half

finish in the Premier League and landed the Capital One Cup.

Among those Laudrup has been able to acquire is Wilfried Bony,

for a club record fee, but he feels another frontman is required to

complete the set.

An approach for former Watford loan star Matej Vydra has been

mooted, with the 21-year-old known to be interesting several clubs

in England.

Laudrup is keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to

possible targets, and admits it could be some time before he is

able to close out his final piece of transfer business.

He said: “We only need one other player – a striker.

“We want a different type of forward, but we are in no rush. It

could take three or four weeks.”
