Swansea are on the hunt for attacking reinforcements this summer amid speculation surrounding the futures of Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis.

Former striker Wilfried Bony has been mooted as a potential target, but Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport say the Swans are tracking Defrel, who managed seven goals and six assists for the Serie A side last term.

The 24-year-old penned a long-term deal with Sassuolo when he joined from Cesena last summer and the Neroverdi are keen to keep hold of the forward, but it is understood a bid in the region of £10million may be enough to convince them to sell.

It has been claimed Defrel would welcome a move to the Premier League but Swansea could face competition as Crystal Palace have also been linked with the forward.
