Swansea chasing Catania star Alejandro Gomez

Football Transfer Centre

Swansea City's manager Michael Laudrup has been eager to kick start his summer transfer plans, and has identified Catania attacking midfielder Alejandro Gomez as a potential target.

The 5 foot 5 attacking midfielder, originally from Argentina, has been a revelation in Sicily since joining from San Lorenzo back in 2010. The player - who is comfortable playing in attacking midfield or on the flanks - has been monitored closely by the Swans this year.

Catania will command a 5 million Euro fee for the 25-year-old winger. This year, the Argentine has already scored an impressive 7 Serie A goals.
