Swansea are targeting a move for Espanyol defender Hector Moreno which could clear the way for Ashley Williams to join Arsenal.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants a new central defender and has been chasing Williams all summer but so far Swansea have managed to fight off interest in their £12million rated star.
Reports have claimed that Arsenal will step up their attempts to do a deal and that has forced Swans boss Michael Laudrup to line up a replacement should the Wales international leave.
That man could well be Moreno and Swansea are reported to have been in touch with cash-strapped Espanyol over a proposed £7million switch to the Liberty Stadium.
Again Moreno is a player that Laudrup knows well following his time in Spain and sees him as the ideal candidate to replace Williams should Arsenal finally land their man.
