Keinan Davis is appearing on the watch list of more Championship clubs in search for a new striker this month.
The 22-year-old is stuck as first reserve at Aston Villa and Dean Smith has hinted that he won’t let him go until or unless he brings in new competition for Ollie Watkins.
In the mean time, he has been linked with Stoke City, Huddersfield Town, Derby County, Preston North End – and now Swansea.
WalesOnline report: “Swans boss Steve Cooper has made a striker his top priority in the January transfer window as he looks to bolster his side’s promotion push, and Davis is just one of several names to have been put forward in recent days.
“Sources close to the player have told WalesOnline that interest from the Swans is genuine, but it seems they would face plenty of competition for his signature, with a host of other Championship clubs also believed to be keen.”
Swansea were also interested in Southampton forward Michael Obafemi, who was on Stoke’s list too, before an injury picked up in training over the weekend meant he was staying put.
Davis is believed to be keen on a chance to play more regularly but may have to be patient for his club to sanction any loan move.
Stoke are in the market for a forward after injuries to Tyrese Campbell, Steven Fletcher and Lee Gregory.
They have been in discussions with Schalke to tie up a loan deal for winger Rabbi Matondo and have also placed a bid for Charlton wide man Alfie Doughty.
