Swansea City are interested in signing Atletico Madrid striker Borja Baston.

Borja spent last season on loan at Eibar, scoring 18 La Liga goals.

The 23-year-old is an Atletico youth product but has made only one league appearance for the 2015-16 Champions League runners-up since graduating to the senior squad in 2010.

Swansea have already agreed a deal to sign Sevilla’s Spain striker Fernando Llorente, who is expected to complete his move on Friday.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has said he expects to announce at least one new signing in the “next few days”.

Jenkins has previously said the Welsh club want at least two new strikers after the summer departures of forwards Alberto Paloschi, Eder and Bafetimbi Gomis.
