Michael Laudrup Demands Top Signings If He’s To Stay At Swansea: The Daily EPL

michael laudrup Michael Laudrup Demands Top Signings If Hes To Stay At Swansea: The Daily EPL

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has warned club chairman Huw Jenkins that he could leave the club unless Swansea deliver the players he wants to sign this summer.

At the top of the list for Laudrup is a new striker — either Romelu Lukaku, St Etienne’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Wigan striker Arouna Kone or Celta Vigo frontman Iago Aspas.

The concern for Swansea fans is that the club have a strict policy of not spending heavily in the transfer market. Swansea’s record buy was £5.5 million for Pablo Hernandez last summer. In order to sign a top striker like the ones mentioned above, they’ll need to break that transfer record.

What do you think? Are Swansea going to break their transfer record, or will Jenkins keep a tight hold on the purse strings and let Laudrup leave as a result? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
