Swansea boss Clement responds to Liverpool striker link

Swansea boss Paul Clement has responded to transfer speculation linking the Welsh club with a Liverpool youngster.

Clement has admitted his side are desperate to add attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window after slipping to another defeat to Chelsea last night.

The Swans, who lost Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the summer, have scored a league-low seven goals in 14 games and their need for support for Tammy Abraham is apparent.

Ladbrokes put Swansea as 7-4 favourites to sign 20-year-old Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke, but Clement has poured cold water on the story.

“He’s a really good player but not one Liverpool would want to let go, I think. He is not a name we have discussed,” Clement told WalesOnline.

Commenting on his side’s potential January business, Clement added: “When you see our goal record we have to strengthen in forward areas.

“How many players that will be I don’t know but the work is going on. We want targets who are really good but are realistic targets. Players that bring more talent but are realistic.

“It is difficult to put a number on it but one or two in forward positions would help.”

Solanke made his first start in the league for Liverpool last night and played for an hour of the 3-0 win over Stoke as Jurgen Klopp shook up his squad.
