Report: Swansea City tracking former Arsenal midfielder

FC Twente

Kyle Ebecilio currently turns out for Eredivisie side FC Twente.

The young Dutchman signed for the Gunners in 2010 and went on to make a number of appearances for their Under-21 side without ever turning out for the first-team.

He departed the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2013, choosing not to extend his contract and return to his homeland and sign with FC Twente. The energetic midfielder has since turned out 57 times for the Eredivisie club, scoring 10 goals and registering six assists, and it looks as if he is starting to live up to his early promise.

A Dutch youth international, the 20-year-old was named the UEFA Golden Player of the 2011 Under-17 European Championship, a trophy awarded to other such stars as Cesc Fabregas, Mario Gotze and Wayne Rooney.

His performances have not gone unnoticed in the Netherlands, and now it appears as if he could be set for a return to the Premier League, with Swansea City reportedly showing an interest in Ebecilio.

As reported by Dutch media outlet Voetbal International, the young Ebecilio has been tracked by the Welsh club for a number of weeks, along with a host of German clubs. He has still has two-and-a-half years on his deal, as outlined in the same report, but the Swans could look to benefit from a disagreement the midfielder has had with Twente head coach Alfred Schreuder. Having been ousted from the first-team in recent weeks, Ebecilio could be looking to move in the near future, and Swansea could swoop for the former Arsenal prospect in the summer.
