Michael Laudrup: Looking for a 'different type of forward'

Michael Laudrup: Looking for a 'different type of forward'

After a frustrating start to his 2013 recruitment drive, Laudrup has been able to make six additions so far.

He feels one more should have the Swans well set to build on their exploits from last season - where they secured a top-half finish in the Premier League and landed the Capital One Cup.

Among those Laudrup has been able to acquire is Wilfried Bony, for a club record fee, but he feels another frontman is required to complete the set.

An approach for former Watford loan star Matej Vydra has been mooted, with the 21-year-old known to be interesting several clubs in England.

Laudrup is keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to possible targets, and admits it could be some time before he is able to close out his final piece of transfer business.

He said: "We only need one other player - a striker.

"We want a different type of forward, but we are in no rush. It could take three or four weeks."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
