Jerson Cabral: Closing in on a move to Swansea City
Sky Sports understands Swansea City are closing in on the signing of Feyenoord winger Jerson Cabral.
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has moved for Cabral with Scott Sinclair poised to leave the Liberty Stadium for Manchester City.
Cabral is regarded as one of the best talents to emerge in Holland in recent years and has represented Holland all the way up from Under 17 level to the Under 21s.
A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with Cabral, but Swansea have moved to line up a deal before Friday's transfer deadline.
Cabral was entering the final year of his contract at Feyenoord and they have been forced to sell him rather than risk losing him for nothing next season.
Swansea are thought to have agreed a £1million fee for the winger, who is comfortable playing on the left and right side of midfield.
However, they could face competition for his signature with FC Twente entering the race for Cabral.
FC Twente are hoping to persuade Cabral to remain in Holland and are expected to offer Wesley Verhoek in an exchange deal.
