Swansea to open Soriano talks

Swansea are set to open talks with Barcelona striker Jonathan Soriano with a view to wrapping up a £1m deal.The 25-year-old caught the eye of Swans boss Brendan Rodgers last season when he fired home 32 goals for the Barca B team and the striker is now high on his wanted list.Chairman Huw Jenkings is refusing to confirm that Swansea are in the hunt for Soriano but did say he is due to open talks with the agent of a player they hope to sign.
"I will be meeting with the representative of a player that we feel will be perfect for Swansea City," Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.
"He has the talent that would fit in to the style in which we believe in, and we are hopeful of him coming here. By flying out to meet his representative, I hope we can agree a deal within the next few days.We will talk about what we want to achieve as a club, and what the player wishes to achieve too."
Swansea will have to move quickly to secure a deal for Soriano as there will be no shortage of interest in the player.
