Reports in the UK suggest Swansea City will sign Chievo striker Alberto Paloschi for €10.5m.
It was reported earlier today that a bid had been accepted, with the Swans then having to negotiate with the player’s entourage.
Now Sky Sports News is reporting that the Welsh side are close to sealing a deal for £8m, subject to a medical.
"Alberto Paloschi was my player when we worked together at Parma," said Swansea head coach Francesco Guidolin, as reported by the BBC.
"He can play well in the Premier League because he is strong. I like him.”
The 26-year-old has eight goals and two assists in his 21 Serie A appearances so far this season.
