Swans manager Garry Monk is keen to add firepower to his side and is said to have identified the Welshman as a target.

Swansea City are planning a move for Reading winger Hal Robson-Kanu, according to The Mirror.

Garry Monk is keen to add more firepower to his side having sold Wilfried Bony in January, and although he has already added Portuguese striker Eder to his ranks, the Swans manager is keen to bolster further.

That has led to him identifying Robson-Kanu as a target, with the Wales international in the final year of his contract and likely to be available for a relatively low fee.

However, Reading have already turned down two bids from the Swans, according to The Mirror, with the Royals holding out for £4million for their man, a price Monk is unlikely to want to pay given the player’s contract situation.

Where would Robson-Kanu fit in at Swansea?

Where Robson-Kanu would fit in at the Liberty Stadium is a difficult question to answer.

The club already have both Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer on their books as their first choice wingers, while Jefferson Montero impressed during his first season in England last year.

That could mean Garry Monk would look to use the Welshman in more of an attacking role, with him currently having only two forwards in his side, with Spaniard Michu likely to leave.
