Neil Taylor: Impressing for Team GB at the Olympics
Sky Sports understands a host of the Premier League big guns are tracking Swansea and Great Britain star Neil Taylor.
Taylor has shone in the Olympics and has been an ever-present in Stuart Pearce's starting XI as Team GB have progressed to the quarter-finals
The 22-year-old enjoyed an outstanding debut campaign in the Premier League last season with Swansea and a number of top clubs have been keeping tabs on his progress.
Taylor's impressive performances for Team GB, where he has been utilised at left-back and right-back, have also caught the eye of his admirers.
The former Wrexham man came close to joining Newcastle last summer before Swansea secured him on a new long-term deal at the Liberty Stadium.
The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham are all thought to be keeping a watching brief on Taylor as they are in the market for defensive reinforcements at full-back.
Swansea would be loath to lose Taylor, but they could find it hard to keep the player if one of the Premier League heavyweights come calling for him.
