A report says that Swansea City are trying to sign Blackpool midfielder Ludovic Sylvestre on a free transfer.

Ludovic Sylvestre has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target of Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup.

It was claimed that the Swans made an offer for the Frenchman last year, but Championship outfit Blackpool rejected the bid.

However, the 29-year-old's contract at Bloomfield Road is due to expire next month and Laudrup is hoping that he can secure his services on a free transfer this time around, according to Sky Sports News.

Sylvestre, who has spent time in the Premier League with Blackpool, joined the Seasiders from Mlada Boleslav in 2010.
