Brendan Rodgers says he’s hoping to bring in a midfielder and a striker within the next couple of days as he looks to strengthen the squad before the transfer window closes.

The Swansea City manager’s top priority is a striker, but he says he’s still looking to bring in a midfielder who can also give us goals. Another target is trialist Kemy Agustien, who we’re hopeful of signing on a free transfer before the end of the month.

Rodgers said:

“It`s on-going, but I hope over the next couple of days we can bring in a couple more players.

“One will be a striker and one another type for us who can add goals.

” And then we`ll ramp it up in the next few weeks to get the type of striker we want.

“But we will look to bring someone in the next 24-48 hours who can play high up the field and then another exciting talent to get us goals from the midfield areas.”

“Frank [Nouble] is one that I worked with at Chelsea and he`s an excellent prospect for the future,”

“He`s got a lot of potential. He`s 6ft 3in, he`s quick, he`s strong and I think he can score goals at this level so he`s one that we`re in discussion with and we`ll see where it goes.”
