Report: Serie A sides eye Swansea swoop

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Three Italian clubs are rumoured to be preparing to table bids for Swansea City midfielder Josè Canas.

Swansea City's defensive midfielder Josè Canas could be headed for Italy if reports there are to be believed.

The 27-year-old is said to appeal to a trio of Serie A clubs who believe they can snap him up at a low price.

Canas joined Swansea in August last year after refusing to renew his contract at Spanish side Real Betis, where he had spent the rest of his career, working his way up from their C team.

After 23 appearances for the Welsh club, Canas is reportedly ready to find a fresh challenge and Serie A may appeal to him.

According to the latest reports in Italy, Atalanta, Sassuolo and Chievo are all keen on Canas and weighing up the possibility of bidding.

Bergamo-based club Atalanta are the biggest of the three and finished 11th last season, threatening to break into the European qualification zone before faltering in the latter stages.

Chievo and Sassuolo are minnows who will be looking simply to stay afloat this term. Sassuolo succeeded in staying up in their maiden top-flight campaign last year while tiny Veronese club Chievo are constantly tipped to go down but have established themselves amongst the elite.

However, Canas may prefer a return to Spain and Elche and Celta Vigo are known to be interested in his signature.
