Swansea boss Cooper admits interest in Brighton striker Gyokeres

Swansea City boss Steve Cooper has admitted interest in Brighton striker Viktor Gyokeres.

Gyökeres was loaned to St Pauli last season and now Swansea are keen.

"He really is a player we like," Cooper told BBC Sport.

"But he is often used in Brighton right now for the Cup matches. If there comes a time when Brighton are happy to loan him out - which I think they may have said publicly, I'm not sure - and they think we would be a good alternative, then that would be something we would like to do.

"But whether it will be like that or not, I'm not so sure yet."
