Swansea City have regained their interest in signing FC Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar, according to the Telegraph.
The Cameroon forward was highly linked with a switch to South Wales in the summer, but a deal failed to cross the finishing line.
Aboubakar himself was quoted admitting interest in coming to Swansea in the summer, saying:
“I’m going to England, Swansea has a proposal. I do not want to miss it.
I talked to my manager, I do not want to miss the offer Swansea offers.”
The 25-year-old has impressed in Europe since making his bow for Valenciennes in France before signing for Jordan Ayew’s former club Lorient.
Aboubakar then signed for Portuguese giants Porto in 2014 and has scored nearly a goal every game in Liga NOS, and impressively netting nine goals in 11 games so far this campaign.
His form is attracting potential suitors ahead of the January transfer window, and the 62-capped Cameroonian is still wanted by Paul Clement to try and help salvage Swansea’s Premier League status.
Would Aboubakar come to the Liberty is the burning question though, with the club’s future not looking good and nowhere near as attractive as we would’ve been in the summer.
And service is another question… the Swans have some good strikers in Wilfried Bony and Tammy Abraham although who’s behind them giving them the ball is the major issue that needs to be resolves before splashing the cash for another goalscorer.
