Swansea are the latest Premier League club to be linked with a move for Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond.
The Swans’ strong finish to the top-flight campaign saw Francesco Guidolin take longer-term charge of the club and according to Club Call, the Italian wants to sign a new winger as doubts surround the futures of Marvin Emnes and Jefferson Montero.
That brought the name of Redmond forward, with the 22-year-old out of contract next summer and faced with a second Championship campaign in the space of three years with the relegated Canaries.
Swansea have also been linked with a move for England international Andros Townsed, who is facing a similar prospect to Redmond, at Newcastle United.
The Daily Mail speculated earlier this week that Stoke lead the chase for Redmond, with Crystal Palace and West Ham also in the race – suggesting a fee of £8m would be enough to tempt Norwich to sell, providing the fee was paid “straight up” rather than in staggered payments.
Redmond arrived at Carrow Road from Birmingham in the summer of 2013 for £3.2m, and the Birmingham Mail reported the Blues will be due 15pc of any profit Norwich make from their subsequent sale.
The England Under-21 winger is currently on Toulon Tournament duty in France, with the young Lions beginning their campaign against Portugal on Thursday evening.
