Swansea City look set to offload winger Luciano Narsingh in the January transfer window, as the Championship club strive to cut their wage bill.

As one of the clubs top earners, Luciano Narsingh looks set to be sacrificed and will listen to offers for the Dutchman in the January transfer window, according to Wales Online.

Narsingh joined Swansea City in the January window of 2017, helping keep Paul Clement’s side in the Premier League. However, the rest of his time at the Liberty Stadium has been underwhelming, and hasn’t featured once this season since the arrival of manager Graham Potter from Swedish side SK Ostersunds.

Wales Online writes that the winger is costing The Jacks around £50,000 a week in wages, a fee they can not afford to be paying in the second tier of English football. The Dutchman’s contract runs out at the end of this season, and Swansea are reluctant to offer him a new contract or let him leave on for free. The winger nearly moved away from South Wales in the summer, as they agreed a deal to sell Narsingh to Greek side AEK Athens, but the deal fell through as the two failed to agree personal terms

Swansea are also willing to listen to loan offers for Narsingh, but will require the buying club to take on his entire wage rather than split it between to the two clubs.

Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony’s future is also up in the air, as he brings in a six-figure wage packet every week. However, the former Manchester City man is currently on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury, so it would be almost impossible to find a club willing to buy the injured man.
