Swansea's Laudrup looking for goalscorers in January

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup insists he will be active in the winter transfer window.

The Swans, who lost 1-0 to Chelsea on Boxing Day, are currently without attackers Michu and Nathan Dyer for extended periods while goalkeeper Michel Vorm is also sidelined.

Following their toothless performance at Stamford Bridge, Laudrup made it clear that quality forwards would be on his radar in January.

"I think we are a little short now, because we are talking about the injuries. It is not just two weeks, we are talking several weeks," he told Sky Sports.

"A part of that is just very small injuries. If you have two or three injuries, you can always cope. As long as you have 18 or 19 players, it is enough.

"But at the moment we have a couple of important injuries for a longer time and that is why maybe we have to do something in January.

"But one thing is to want to do something and another thing is to find the right ones, because a lot of teams are looking, especially for players who can score goals, in the transfer window."
