The 25-year-old is a free agent after he ran down his contract with A-League club Newcastle Knights and is now poised to make the move to Europe with Bournemouth, Newcastle, FC Twente and Rosenborg having all previously been linked with a move.

However, reports in Australia claim it is the Swans who are leading the chasing pack for Birighitti’s signature having offered him a two-year deal, with the option of another 12 months.

It is claimed the shot stopper will undergo a medical at the Liberty Stadium on Friday afternoon ahead of finalising his switch as the Swans look to add competition to their ranks to current number one Lukasz Fabianski.
