Striker-hungry Swansea linked with West Brom's Odemwingie, Getafe's Vazquez

Swansea City are still searching for a new striker with manager Michael Laudrup confirming he wants to add one more player to his squad.

The Jacks are being linked with West Bromwich Albion's Peter Odemwingie and Getafe's Alvaro Vazquez although Laudrup insists that he has not yet made a bid for either player.

"I don't want to go into details too much. I have told you many times the position I am looking for and the player I need, someone with different qualities and characteristics," he said.

"Vazquez is a young player and a little different. He is a young forward who plays wide and he has the characteristics we were talking about, like Odemwingie.

"I imagine that's why his name came up, because they both fit into the profile that we are looking for.

"I can't say that we are putting in bids, just that we are talking to different persons and we have alternative possibilities.

"The only thing I can confirm is that we have nothing near completion. On the other hand, when do you know you are close? You never know."
