Swansea in talks for Southampton striker Michael Obafemi

Swansea City are eyeing Southampton striker Michael Obafemi.

Football Insider says Swans are in "advanced talks" to sign striker Obafemi on a loan deal.

Obafemi, 20, has struggled for game time at Saints this season, featuring just twice as a late substitute against Brentford and Burnley back in September.

After a spell out of the squad, the forward returned and was an unused substitute for each of Saints' last two matches.

But Swansea are looking to snap up the youngster on a move until the end of the season and are "closing in" on completing the deal.

Steve Cooper's Swans are currently sitting in second place in the second tier.
