Swans go winger crazy? Now it is the turn of Crystal Palace wideman who has been linked before

After the Swans have been crying out for true width for some time they are now linked with a move for Crystal Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei.

Already having secured the signing of both Ronald and seemingly Arsenal youngster Charles Sagoe Jr we have had links today with Norwich wideman Przemysław Płacheta who is out of contract this summer and rumoured to already be in SA1 undertaking a medical.

Ebiowei, 20, is said to be on the radar of fellow Championship sides QPR and Coventry City and now Sky Sports are linking the Swans as also considering a move for the youngster who spent the second-half of the last campaign with Hull City under Liam Rosenior but struggled to make an impact with the Tigers, making 12 appearances in total.

Palace did not loan him out in the summer but now, given his lack of opportunities at Selhurst Park, seemingly are prepared to let him go.

Given all these links it seems reasonably obvious that the Swans are targeting recruits in attacking positions which is a good thing given our relative lack of prowess in front of goal and generic lack of creation.

The Swans were also linked with a move for Ebiowei back in December 2022 but nothing materialised from that link.

This could turn into an interesting day!
