Swansea could return for Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi after having an initial £2.75million bid rejected by the Belgians.
The Swans are thought to have tabled the offer for the exciting 19-year-old on Thursday but saw it rejected by Liege, whose chairman, Roland Duchatelet, is holding out for more money.
Michael Laudrup is keen to snap up the Belgian Under-21 international now as he seems him as a star of the future and is likely to push for Swansea to make an improved offer.
The Welsh club could face competition from Anderlecht for Batshuayi, with Gent having accused their Belgian rivals of tapping up the teenager earlier this year.
Laudrup is keen to improve his options up front and is looking to bring in Batshuayi, as well as Lyon hitman Bafetimbi Gomis, who is valued at £8million by the French club.
