Despite comfortably sitting in mid-table as the league draws to a close, this season has been a disappointing one for Swansea City.
The Welsh side went into the season with one of the most exciting young British managers in the game at the helm and were being tipped to challenge for the European places. Instead, as Leicester and West Ham have taken the plaudits of the country, the Swans were battling relegation for large parts of the season and removed Garry Monk from the managerial position.
However, under the stewardship of Francesco Guidolin and Alan Curtis, things picked up and relegation fears were eased. A 4-1 win at West Ham saw the team back to somewhere near their best and suggests the 2016-17 season could hold better things for the Swans.
There is every reason to expect that an ‘outsider’ will challenge for the European places again next year and nothing to suggest that Swansea shouldn’t be among these clubs. In order to realise these ambitions though, a few additions to the playing squad will be required. Here, we take a look at three signings the club should be looking to make to help them achieve this goal.
