Laudrup denied reports emerging from Spain that Swansea had bid £6million for his services in January but confirmed the 24-year-old was on his radar.

Botia, who has been part of Spain's senior squad but is yet to be capped, only joined Sevilla from Sporting Gijon last summer.

"He is a good player, but there are a lot of good players in that position," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.

"He may be on a list but it's a long list.

"We have been linked with three or four players already, and this is only the beginning.

"There will be a lot of rumours with the transfer window coming up."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
