Swansea step up Wells interest
Swansea City have reportedly reaffirmed their initial interest in Nahki Wells by making a permanent bid for the Bermuda striker.
According to English media reports earlier this week, the Sky Bet Championship club, were touted as a possible destination for Wells, who spent last season with league rivals Queens Park Rangers, scoring nine goals in 48 appearances.
That interest has now been firmed up with reports in national newspapers of a bid of £2.5 million reportedly being made to Burnley.
The Welsh club are in search of attacking reinforcements following the sale of Oli McBurnie to Sheffield United for £20m, with Wells being linked as a potential replacement.
Wells caught the eye while at Huddersfield Town, scoring 49 goals in 153 appearances during a 2½ half-year stay at the John Smith's Stadium, helping the club gain promotion to the second tier of English football during the 2016-17 season.
That form earned him a move to the Premier League, with Sean Dyche's Burnley stumping up £5m to sign the striker, handing him a three-year deal in the process.
However, it has proved a frustrating move for the 29 year-old, who has gone on to make just ten substitute appearances for the the club, leading to an uncertain future at Turf Moor.
