Swansea set to break transfer record with £15m La Liga striker

The 23-year-old striker was surplus to requirements with Atletico boss Diego Simoene after spending each of the last five seasons out on loan.

But he impressed during those spells, scoring 18 goals in La Liga for Eibar last term, to convince Swansea he is worth a big outlay.

The fee surpasses the £12.5m forked out for Wilfried Bony in 2012 and Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin will hope Baston can make a similar impact.
