Swansea City have moved their attentions to Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yeung as they could miss out on targets Pablo Hernandez and Mark Davies.


Manager Michael Laudrup has made a ‘concrete offer’ for Valencia winger Hernandez, but the La Liga side say the bid doesn’t match their valuation.


It’s the same story with Bolton Wanderers’ midfielder Mark Davies, as sources believe the Swans are £2m short of their asking price.


Sky Sports believe that the Swans have moved on and are looking at the young South Korean to replace Joe Allen following his move to Liverpool.


The 23 year-old has been hailed as the ‘South Korean Steven Gerrard’ and has a similar all-round game to that of the English international. The youngster is surely going to go on to bigger things, and the Swans could get another coup if they can be successful in their attempts to sign him before 31st August.


Sky Sports have also said today that the Swans appear to be in ‘pole position’ and talks are at an ‘advanced stage’ between the two clubs, with Celtic believed to be willing to sell at the right price.


Last season he scored 6 SPL goals in 24 appearances and he has also attracted the interest of Arsenal and QPR recently.
