English side Swansea join race to sign Wakaso

English Premier League side Swansea have joined the long queue of clubs interested in signing Ghana midfield star Mubarak Wakaso. 

The Wales-based club are prepared to splash €5million to be able to sign the midfielder from his Spanish club Espanyol.

Swansea become the fifth club reported to be keen on signing the powerhouse midfielder.

Apart from mild interest from Juventus, Wigan also has also been in contact with his current club Espanyol.

Speculation in Italy suggests the Serie A champions Juventus are lining up a €7million (£6m) for the Ghana international while Inter Milan are also thought to be monitoring the situation.

Everton have at the same time been credited with an interest in Wakaso and Roberto Martinez, who has succeeded David Moyes as manager at Goodison Park, is rumoured to be a fan.

But while the 22-year-old is pleased his star performances are being recognised, he knows a decision on his future rests with Espanyol.

Wakaso said: "Espanyol will decide about my future.

Juventus have been monitoring the exploits of the former Elche and Villarreal player since the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Wakaso, 23, has been a revelation in the setup of coach Javier Aguirre since moving to the Barcelona club last summer and he played 24 times scoring thrice in the just ended league season.
