It has today been reported that Premier League side Swansea City will hold talks with Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes after the two sides clash in the FA Cup on Saturday, reports the Daily Mail.

The consistently clinical striker has been constantly linked with moves to the top league, but Blackburn remain determined to make a profit on the man they paid £8million to bring to Ewood Park from Huddersfield Town.

Swansea will be in the market for a striker after the £28million sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City coupled with the increasing uncertainty of Bafetimbi Gomis’ future at The Liberty.

However, manager Gary Monk has stated that he does not one to splash all the cash on players, instead investing a significant amount into the clubs infrastructure.

Blackburn could soon be left short of strikers, with the in form Rudy Gestede catching the attention of Premier League Crystal Palace.

The Swans are also reportedly interested in Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse, but if it is goals they need to replace, then they should look no further than the man who has scored 61 goals in 111 games for Rovers.
