The close-season has seen a busy period of transfer activity at the Liberty Stadium, with Lukasz Fabianski, Bafetimbi Gomis and Marvin Emnes all arriving in south Wales while captain Ashley Williams and long-serving midfielder Leon Britton have signed new deals.
With the new campaign set to get under way in a little under six weeks and the Swans out to build on their 12th-placed finish last term, Monk is keen to bring in more new faces to further bolster his options, with Bosnia-Herzegovina midfielder Muhamed Besic reportedly close to a deal.

For acquisitions to be made, however, Monk appreciates that some players will have to move in the opposite direction.
He explained: "Some will have to go the other way but the situations will be dictated by what I come across in the next couple of weeks. It's important to hear what players think because there's no point me putting a lot of effort into someone who doesn't want to be here.
"At the moment I haven't had that situation. I've had a couple of chats with players who probably will be moving on if they're not getting games but I always said I'd be honest and I have been so far.
"There are conversations I've got to have in the next couple of days. If I need to have them, I'll have them.
"You're dictated to by the constraints of the club. You can't have 30 or 40 pros all on a certain amount of money. It doesn't work like that - you have to balance the sheets."
