Swansea considering Manchester City loan signing

After what was a very impressive season abroad, it looks as if Manchester City striker, John Guidetti, will once again be farmed out away from the Etihad Stadium, with Swansea being reported as a likely destination.

The Swedish starlet had an extremely successful term in Holland last season when he went on loan to Feyenoord, scoring 22 goals in 22 starts for the club.

Guidetti also managed to provide eight assists and while this record suggests massive potential, he still isn’t thought to be quite ready for centre-stage with Manchester City.

The Swans already seem keen on building on a magnificent 2011-12 campaign and after the midfielder spent six months on loan at the club, Gylfi Sigurdsson appears odds-on to sign a permanent deal at the Liberty Stadium.

While Swansea’s defence was admirable, the Welsh outfit suffered slightly when it came to attacking, they looked more lacklustre at times.

The club may have managed a mid-table finish, but they were the fifth lowest team in regards to scoring goals, netting on just 44 occasions in the entire Premier League campaign.

Danny Graham was utilized as the main striking outlet for much of the campaign but the majority of goals happened to come from midfield.

As such, the striking department is one area of the field that Brendan Rodgers will likely look to strengthen even further this summer with Guidetti as his first target.

The 20 year-old is also a Swedish international having made his senior debut earlier this year but is a doubt for Euro 2012 after picking up an injury.

It was reported that the youngster was undergoing electric shock treatment to overcome the knock but it’s too early to know if the treatment took the desired effect.

With their starlet unlikely to feature in the first-team, Manchester City would be smart to loan Guidetti out once more and give him a chance to get used to the high demands of the Premier League.
