Swansea City are reportedly ready to hijack Norwich City’s bid to sign Scotland international Steven Naismith this month, according to The pink‘un.
The Premier League side, who lost 4-2 against Sunderland on Wednesday night to drop to within a point of the relegation zone, are eager to strengthen their attacking ranks with the capture of the Everton hitman during the January transfer window.
The 29-year-old, who has 40 international caps for his country, has scored four goals in 13 appearances in all competitions for Roberto Martinez’s Toffees this season.
Naismith, who looked destined to join Norwich after both clubs agreed an £8m fee earlier this month, is reportedly ready to snub the potential move to the Canaries and wait until the summer to sort out his future.
However Swans interim boss Alan Curtis confirmed his interest in signing the striker within the forthcoming weeks, “I think he’s on a list (of transfer targets).
“I know he’s a player available – he’s an excellent player. Like all good players, if we can afford to bring him in, then we will be interested.
“We’re still looking for that main striker. Steve is probably someone who plays just behind the main striker but someone we will be interested in.”
