Bad for Southampton: Swansea’s Andreas Samaris move

Swansea vs Southampton

According to reports out of Portugal this week, Swansea and Southampton are battling to sign Benfica’s Andreas Samaris.

Considering their respective league forms, will either side still be in the Premier League next season?

Southampton are in deep trouble following a 3-0 defeat at West Ham last weekend. Mark Hughes’s side are third bottom of the league, two points behind Crystal Palace.

Swansea are faring a bit better in 15th spot in the division. The Swans have 31 points on the board after 31 games.

Andreas Samaris to leave Benfica

28-year-old Greek midfielder Andreas Samaris is looking to leave Benfica in the summer.

The Greek international has only made 19 appearances in all competitions this season for the Benfica. That’s included 12 league appearances, which he’s returned one goal.

Under contract at the Stadium of Light until 29, reports are bigging up Samaris’s summer exit.

In Tuesday’s edition of A Bola, Swansea are tipped with landing the midfielder.

A Bola hang a 10 million euro price tag around the midfielder’s neck.

Samaris could be brought in to replace South Korean Ki Sung-Yueng, who is a free agent at the end of the campaign.

Fears Sam Clucas has knee ligament damage

Swansea lost 2-0 at Man United last weekend.

Ten minutes into the second half, Swansea were forced into a change.

Sam Clucas was forced out the match. He was replaced by Wayne Routledge.

Clucas pulled up with what appeared to be a knee injury, and he immediately was taken out the game.

The Swansea midfielder looked visibly upset at the time of his injury, and after the game Carlos Carvahal revealed bad news:

He twisted his knee. The internal and external ligament, but we don’t know more than that because he needs a scan.

We hope it’s not serious as we don’t have a big squad.
