Laudrup yet to decide on Aspas pursuit

Michael Laudrup insists Swansea City have not yet decided on Iago Aspas.

The 25-year-old has been in impressive form for Celta Vigo this season, with six goals and two assists to his name from 17 appearances in La Liga. This has led to speculation he could be on his way when the window reopens next month, and Laudrup admits he is an admirer.

However, the Swans coach has stopped short of confirming he will bid for Aspas, who developed through the youth ranks at Balaidos having first linked up with them back in 1995.

“He [Aspas] is a very good player,” revealed Laudrup. “I know him, but to say he is coming here is a big step. When I look at players, I look first for quality. Second, do they fit into this environment, this squad and this city? Then there is the salary and the fee.”

The Dane is enjoying a successful debut campaign in the Premier League, having been appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor during the summer. Ahead of their trip to Fulham on Saturday afternoon, the Liberty Stadium outfit sit ninth in the top-flight standings at the half-way stage.
