Swansea are hoping to sign striker Pablo Counago after agreeing a fee with Championship rivals Ipswich.
The Swans have had an undisclosed offer accepted by Roy Keane's side and will now hold talks with the Spaniard.
New manager Paulo Sousa is eager to bolster his strikeforce following the sale of Jason Scotland to Wigan.
Chairman Huw Jenkins admitted there was still a long way to go before a deal is concluded but hopes Sousa will persuade the former Celta Vigo and Malaga man his future lies at Liberty Stadium.
Jenkins told Swansea's official website: "The deal is still at the early stages.
"We have agreed a transfer fee with Ipswich, but nothing has been agreed with the player.
"Paulo has made no secret of the fact that he wants another striker to add competition up front. He believes Pablo fits the bill perfectly.''
