Swansea City are in talks to sign Plymouth Argyle midfielder Ruben Lameiras, according to The Guardian.

It looks like another summer of change for The Swans, who have already lost star winger Daniel James to Manchester United and manager Graham Potter to Brighton and Hove Albion.

England U17 coach Steve Cooper looks set to replace Potter at the Liberty Stadium and, according to reports, Lameiras could be his first signing in another new era in South Wales.

 

A 24-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur youngster, Lamieras is currently plying his trade in for Plymouth but the South Coast club look set to lose one of their key players after being relegated to League Two last season.

The Portuguese midfielder, who can also play on the wing, still managed to score 12 goals for the Green Army in 2018/19.

Lisbon-born Lameiras was expected to move to France with Bordeaux but, after the move fell through, Swansea look set to take advantage with The Guardian reporting that they are in talks to sign a player whose contract expires at the end of the month.

Charlton Athletic, promoted to the Championship in May, have also held discussions.
