Swansea City are reportedly hoping to edge ahead of Chelsea in the race to sign PSV Eindhoven and Colombia right-back Santiago Arias this summer.

Swansea City have reportedly joined the race to sign PSV Eindhoven defender Santiago Arias.

The 25-year-old, a Colombia international, has been on the Dutch club's books since 2013, moving from Sporting Lisbon.

During his time at the Philips Stadion, he has made 140 appearances, scoring seven goals and notching up an impressive 15 assists from the right-back position.

According to The Sun, Arias has been earmarked by Paul Clement as a key signing for Swansea, and with the money from the Gylfi Sigurdsson sale, they could make a big offer for the player.

The report also claims that Chelsea have Arias on their list for the wing-back role, given how their reported top target, Valencia's Joao Cancelo, looks likely to go to Inter, so Clement might be tempted to move quickly for the Colombian.

Arias made 28 appearances in the Eredivisie last season for PSV.
