Vincent Aboubakar Close to a Swansea City Move!

​Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar says he cannot afford to turn down a move to Premier League side Swansea City.

The Swans avoided relegation last season and will be looking to improve upon their 15th place finish after a string of fine performances from forward duo Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente.


Manager Paul Clement looks to be eager to add more options going forward to his squad, especially after the club-record deal for Borja Baston yielded just one goal in 16 Premier League appearances.

Aboubakar was in great form during the 2016-17 season, scoring 12 Super Lig goals as well as strikes in the Champions League and Europa League, and the 25-year-old says he needs to move to the Welsh club after a mixed spell with Porto.

He said, as quoted by ​Wales Online: “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.”


Spaniard Llorente scored a number of important goals for Swansea last season, ending the campaign with 15 league strikes, but his spot in Clement’s first choice team could be under threat should a deal for Aboubakar materialise.

Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers are also thought to be tracking the Cameroon international, who has scored 18 goals for his country and has just one year left on his Porto contract.

Swansea’s Premier League rivals Newcastle, newly promoted from the Championship, are also monitoring the situation, as are Ligue 1 clubs Rennes and Marseille.
