According to reports from A Bola, Swansea City are on the verge of sealing the signing of Nelson Oliveira from Benfica.
Swansea have already lost the services of Bafetimbi Gomis, Eder and Alberto Paloschi this summer and the future of star man Andre Ayew is currently hanging in the balance.
The mass exodus means that Swansea’s attacking lineup has been left extremely weakened and manager Francesco Guidolin will surely need to bring in a couple of strikers to the Liberty Stadium before the start of the Premier League campaign.
A host of high profile names such as Leonardo Ulloa (BBC), Peter Crouch (The Sun) and even Wilfried Bony (The Express) have been linked with a move to Swansea over the past few weeks, but in surprise reports emerging out of Portugal the Swans are said to be on the verge of making a move for Oliveira.
According to reports from A Bola, Swansea have agreed a deal in principle with Benfica to sign Oliveira and the transfer will be concluded within the next few days.
Oliveira previously played for Swansea back in the 2014/15 campaign and while he did not enjoy the best of spells in front of goal, the striker managed to prove his worth to fans in England while on loan at Nottingham Forest last season, where he scored nine goals in 28 appearances.
As a result of his fine form at the City Ground, Swansea seemed to have been convinced to take another chance on Oliveira and this time the Welsh side are believed to be signing the Portuguese international on a permanent basis.
