Swansea boss Laudrup eyes additional striker

Michael Laudrup has revealed that he is looking to bring in another striker at Swansea City.

The Danish manager has already made six additions to the club this summer; the most high-profile of which being the capture of Wilfried Bony from Vitesse Arnhem for a record club fee of £12 million.

Despite acquiring the Ivory Coast international, who scored 31 goals in 30 games for his club last season, Laudrup believes that the club still require another forward.

He told reporters: "We only need one other player - a striker."

"We want a different type of forward, but we are in no rush. It could take three or four weeks," he added.

The 49-year-old led the Swans to 9th place in the Premier League and won the Capital One Cup with victory over Bradford and has strengthened his squad with the signings of Bony, Jose Canas, Jordi Amat, Alejandro Pozuelo, Jonjo Shelvey and Jonathan De Guzman on another season-long loan deal.
