Report: Swansea lining up Bolton's misfit striker

The ex-Liverpool striker has scored just four goals in all competitions this season but could prove a good short-term fix for the struggling Swans

Swansea are interested in signing Bolton Wanderers striker David N'Gog, according to a report in the Manchester Evening News.

N'Gog has only scored four goals in all competitions for the Trotters so far this term, largely playing second fiddle to Jermaine Beckford but has been prolific of late, with three of those four goals coming in his last four appearances.

The former Liverpool striker has failed to sparkle for Bolton since his £4m move from Merseyside in August 2011 and is one of six players out of contract at the end of the season.

The Swans are struggling for goals and form, having won just one of their last 10 Premier League games and scoring just seven in their last eight.

Bolton would not stand in the way of N'Gog's potential departure, but with Jermaine Beckford out injured for a month, it would leave Trotters boss Dougie Freedman short of options up front.

With that said, a financial package to suit both parties could force a deal over the line before next Friday's deadline, with Bolton exploring the possibility of a move for Sunderland striker Danny Graham - currently on loan at Hull - who has a host of Championship suitors.
