Barcelona striker Soriano close to Swansea move

Swansea are in pole position for Barcelona striker Jonathan Soriano. The 25-year-old finished as the top scorer in the Spanish Segunda Division last season, notching 32 times for Barca's B side.

Chairman Huw Jenkins has reportedly made plans to meet with Soriano's representatives.

"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."

When asked if Soriano was the man at the centre of the talks, Jenkins added: "I think Brendan likes him, and I don't think anything has happened with him yet this summer."
