Swansea City Lining up Move for Burnley Striker Nakhi Wells
According to reports from Sky Sports News, Swansea City are set to make an official move for Clarets striker Nakhi Wells. Having spent last season on loan at QPR he is now attracting interest from the Welsh club as they look to increase their attacking options following the sale of star forward Oli McBurnie to Premier League Sheffield United.
Wells, is currently well down in the pecking order at Turf Moor with Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes and Jay Rodriguez all ahead of him as well as Matej Vydra who is also seeking a move away from the club having handed in a transfer request.
It may turn out to be no more than another loan move away for the forward but Swansea City are desperately looking to replace the departed McBurnie who was their main source of goals last season. Wells could make his second loan move in as many seasons, after scoring seven in 40 games at QPR in his loan spell last season.
Swansea have bought in a huge £40million from the sales of Oli McBurnie and Daniel James to Manchester United, but they are yet to spend any money on players. They are looking to work within their financial restraints following their relegation from the Premier League in 2018.
Wells is an experienced Championship player and he would link up well with the likes of Nathan Dyer. But its more than likely that the Swans will need to delve into the transfer market and consider spending some of their transfer budget otherwise it could turn into a long season fighting at the wrong end of the Sky Bet Championship.
