Swansea City to rush for Brentford star Tariqe Fosu as Kyle Joseph seals loan exit
Swansea City are considering a loan for Brentford’s Tariqe Fosu.
The Swans were eager to step up their attacking options and identified Fosu as an option to improve their team in the final third, as The Athletic first reported.
The 25-year-old can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder.
Russell Martin’s side will be hoping to sign the Ghana international on loan for the remainder of the campaign. One deal would include the possibility of making the change permanent in the summer of 2021.
Fosu scored five goals in 41 appearances for the Bees last season while being promoted to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Kyle Joseph joined Cheltenham Town on loan.
The Swans signed the forward earlier this summer after his release by Wigan Athletic.
He impressed in Carabao Cup victories over Reading and Plymouth Argyle, although Martin is eager to see the 19-year-old gain more experience in the number nine role elsewhere.
And he sealed a loan at League One side Cheltenham late on deadline day.
The Swans remain keen to sign deals to bring free agent Olivier Ntcham and Southampton frontman Michael Obafemi to South Wales.
