Swansea City target claims he is ready for Premier League move

FC Twente striker Luc Castaignos has stated his intentions to leave the club this summer, with cash-strapped Twente ready to let their star leave on the cheap.

The former Inter Milan striker was subject to a £6.5 million bid last summer from Swansea but the club eventually pulled out, according to the Mirror.

Castaignos has managed ten goals this season in 29 appearances for Twente and is reported to be a target for Swansea once again.

After losing Wilfried Bony in January to Manchester City, the Swans are short up front and Castaignos could fill the void left by the Ivorian and to offer backup to French striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

Speaking to the Dutch media, Castaignos stated: “I want to go abroad, preferably to a nice top performer in England or Germany so I can get used to the competition.

“I know enough about myself to know I am not ready for the real top yet.”

With Twente ready to sell it may be possible for Swansea to get their man on the cheap, with a transfer fee potentially falling under the £6.5 million fee that was accepted last year.

Is Luc Castaignos the man to replace Wilfried Bony at Swansea City?
