Scott Sinclair: Limited playing time at Swansea

Sinclair left the Liberty Stadium last summer when they paid around £6million for his signature - but the 24-year-old has barely kicked a ball since the move.

He has started just two league games for Roberto Mancini's side so far this term and, as the two clubs prepare to meet this weekend, Laudrup admits he is in their thinking for the summer.

"We have other players who can play that position that we are looking at," said Laudrup.

"We have to make some decisions when we start talking to people about what is possible and what is not. Because it is one thing having names on paper and another when you start talking about salaries, transfers and all that.

"But he (Sinclair) has quality and he has already shown it and we will see what decisions we make on that for the future.

"Good players in his position are always an option and he has a British passport which is another thing we have to look at in an overall perspective."

Laudrup admits that one of his main priorities is adding more firepower to his squad.

"That's one thing to consider," he said. "We need more goals next year. We cannot expect Michu to score as many goals.

"We've scored 43 goals this season, one less than last season, and we have four games to go.

"But many of them have come from one player and you cannot put so much pressure on his shoulders.

"I would love Michu to repeat his goal-scoring numbers next year, but we cannot expect it so we have to divide the goals out to more players.

"We will need to bring in somebody who has scored goals on a regular basis in their career."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
