Swansea City fans react on Twitter to Alberto Paloschi deal

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea City have added to their striker ranks this month.

As confirmed by the club’s official website, Swansea City have bolstered their attacking ranks by completing the signing of Alberto Paloschi from Serie A side Chievo.

The Swans have endured a tough campaign thus far in the Premier League, sitting just above the relegation zone after a horrible run of just two wins in 17 matches.

Back-to-back victories have eased their worries somewhat in the past two weeks, yet their lack of goals is still a big problem and one the club have looked to rectify this month.

The Welsh side have found the net only 22 times this season, with bottom club Aston Villa the only team in the Premier League who have scored fewer with an alarming 18 strikes.

As such, Swansea have identified the striking department as an area to improve and the arrival of Alberto Paloschi from Italian side Chievo represents a real coup for the club.

The former AC Milan striker is very highly-rated in Italy, having scored eight goals and adding a further two assists in 19 Serie A starts this season for Chievo – a relative minnow in the top-flight.

He will provide Swansea with more options upfront and relieve the pressure off top scorer Andre Ayew.

Writing on Twitter upon his confirmation, Swansea fans acknowledged that the 26-year-old’s arrival could prove to be a pivotal moment in their season as they bid to avoid the drop come next May.
