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.

"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."
