Swansea City tipped to bid for Sweden international Viktor Claesson

Swansea City are linked with a summer move for Kuban Krasnodar playmaker Viktor Claesson.

Swansea City are allegedly lining up a summer swoop for Kuban Krasnodar's Swedish international Viktor Claesson.

The Russian outfit are open to selling the playmaker if a bid of around £8m is tabled, The Sun reports.

Swansea, however, face competition from German clubs Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt for the 26-year-old's signature.

Claesson, who is under contract with Krasnodar until 2020, joined the Russian top-flight side from Elfsborg in 2012.

The midfielder has earned 21 caps for Sweden and is an expected to be included in their World Cup squad.
