Italian coach Francesco Guidolin has arrived at the Liberty Stadium ahead of being named Swansea’s new head coach, sources have told TEAMtalk.
Swansea have lined up the 60-year-old to work alongside current boss Alan Curtis until the end of the season as the club look to secure survival in the Premier League.
Curtis was named as successor to the Garry Monk as recently as last week, but the club feel he needs help after they slipped into the bottom three.
Guidolin boasts a wealth of managerial experience having coached the likes of Udinese, Atalanta, Bologna, Genoa, Palermo and Monaco.
The Italian guided unfashionable Udinese twice into the Champions League and is highly-regarded in Italy.
Guidolin will watch Monday’s clash with Watford and sources have told TEAMtalk that Guidolin was accompanied to the Liberty Stadium by agent Frank Trimboli of Base Soccer for further talks with Swansea officials.
Swansea are hopeful of finalising a deal to appoint Guidolin as head coach until the end of the season before the game with Watford and should he achieve the task of keeping Swansea up he could be handed a longer stay at the Liberty Stadium.
