Swansea City: Striker on list of transfer targets – Luke Williams

Swansea City: Striker on list of transfer targets – Luke Williams

13 May 2024 0 By Total Football News

Swansea lost Joel Piroe, who reached the 20-goal mark in each of his two seasons in Wales, to Leeds last summer and replaced him with Jerry Yates, who struck 10 times in his first campaign at the club.

Jamal Lowe was the Swans’ joint leading scorer alongside Yates in 2023-24, but he has now come to the end of a year-long loan.

Lowe is one of six loan players who have said their farewells alongside Carl Rushworth, Harrison Ashby, Bashir Humphreys, Charlie Patino and Charles Sagoe Jr.

There is no news yet, meanwhile, on whether Swansea’s six out-of-contract players – Kyle Naughton, Nathanael Ogbeta, Joe Allen, Liam Walsh, Jamie Paterson and Przemyslaw Placheta – will remain at the club.

Williams is understood to want some of those players to stay, but there will still be scope for a number of new recruits as Swansea look to improve on a 14th-place Championship finish.

As it stands, there are just 17 senior players – including some fringe figures such as Kristian Pedersen and Nathan Tjoe-A-On – under contract for 2024-25.

“Naturally there are gaps now in the squad that we need to fill and we need to fill those gaps as intelligently as we possibly can,” Williams said.
