The Wales defender has been linked with a £15million summer switch to join former boss Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, where the Swans travel on Sunday for their Premier League clash.

While Laudrup insists he wants to keep hold of his best players, he is relaxed about the situation.

He said: "Of course I want to keep hold of my best players - and that includes Ashley Williams.

"But these stories also show me that the bigger clubs want my players because they are performing so well.

"That is only natural."

Laudrup is focused on the Anfield clash before his side take on League Two's Bradford in the Capital One Cup final next Sunday, with the Swansea boss insisting final places are still up for grabs.

He added: "I haven't picked my team for the final yet, so every player still has a chance.

"But Liverpool at Anfield is a huge game for us. We have to go and think about the final after that."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
