Swansea City are set to bid £12.5 million for Burnley striker Andre Gray in the hope that he can provide the goals to fire the club away from the relegation zone, according to The Daily Mail.

Gray, who signed for Burnley in August from Championship rivals Brentford, has scored 15 goals in 22 appearances this season.  The forward is only 24 years of age and looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

Alan Curtis has been confirmed as Swansea manager until the end of the season and, according to the report, the club are set to back him by spending big on a striker this month.  After having a bid of £14 million for Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini rejected, the Welsh club have turned their attentions to Gray.

Whether Gray will be allowed to sign for Swansea remains to be seen.  The striker has already played for two clubs this year (Brentford and Burnley), with players not being allowed to play for three clubs in the same season.
