Report: Marcelo Bielsa already analysing Swansea City's squad; confident of move

Swansea City and Everton are both reportedly keen on Marcelo Bielsa.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Marcelo Bielsa is so confident of landing the Swansea City job that he is already analysing their squad.

Swansea were linked with Bielsa when they parted company with Garry Monk, but on that occasion they decided to appoint Francesco Guidolin instead.

Guidolin has guided Swansea away from trouble, but he is expected to leave in the summer. And Bielsa believes that the Swans will turn to him to take them forward.

Everton are also apparently admirers of the Argentine manager, and reports have suggested that they could look to swap him for Roberto Martinez.

However, Bielsa is more focused on the Swansea job, and he is already drawing up plans that he could make at the Liberty Stadium.

Bielsa is believed to be very keen to test himself in the Premier League, after previous stints at the likes of Marseille and Athletic Bilbao.

Swansea are set for a takeover, and they should have more money to spend in the summer transfer window, which has helped make the job look even more attractive to Bielsa.
