Swansea City feel they're in the boxseat for Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas.

The South Wales Echo says Aspas is thought to be open to the idea of a new challenge having been with Celta Vigo since his schoolboy days.

And Swansea will hope the impact of pal Michu and the influence of La Liga legend Laudrup could sway any deal in their favour.

Michu's move to one of the more lesser profile clubs in the Premier League has not affected his chances of a international breakthrough, the 26-year-old and Aspas both mentioned as potential newcomers to the Spain squad for the February friendly with Uruguay by boss Vincent del Bosque recently.
