Swansea closing in on Esteban Granero

Queen Park Rangers midfielder Esteban Granero's agent has revealed that Swansea City have opened talks for the player, but insists that the Spaniard is still open to a switch to the Serie A.

The 26-year-old who arrived at Loftus Road from La Liga giants Real Madrid last season is not keen on plying his trade in the Championship and is nearing a move to the Liberty Stadium.

His agent Carlos Cutropia says the negotiations are underway but he gave a hint that interest in Italy in the form of Napoli could entice the player to change his mind up.

He told TuttoMercatoWeb.com: "The two clubs (Swansea and QPR) are talking about a transfer, it's true. Michael Laudrup knows him very well from their time at Getafe where together they had a great UEFA Cup campaign. Swansea would be an absolutely acceptable destination for Esteban.

"I've received many enquiries from Spanish and English clubs, but for various reasons we have not reached a conclusion. "The dream of Esteban is to one day play in Italy. If we get calls from Italy we will take them into serious consideration."
