Di Marzio’s report claims that the Ivory Coast international’s loan spell at CSKA Moscow is coming to an end, clearing the way for Swansea to strike a deal with Roma for the striker’s services.
Doumbia first rose to prominence during his first stint at CSKA, scoring bags of goals and earning himself a big-money move to Serie A giants Roma last January.
However, his struggle to adapt to Italian football prompted a switch back to Moscow on loan, despite initial reports linking him with a move to the Premier League.
The Daily Star accredited West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion with a strong interest in the 28-year-old, yet a proposed move to England during the summer transfer window never materialised.
Now, a potential move to East London seems very much off the cards as boss Slaven Bilic recently told the Daily Mail that his side are no longer in the market for a new striker.
Swansea, on the other hand, seemingly are as the Welsh side seek to bolster their ranks this month.
Alan Curtis’s side have struggled for goals this season and a new striker is a must if they harbour hopes of preserving their Premier League status come the end of the season.
Doumbia has five goals in 11 league starts for CSKA Moscow plus a further three in the Champion League as the Russian side missed out on the knockout stages alongside Manchester United.
