Swansea City are in talks with Inter Milan over the potential signing of defender Andrea Ranocchia, according to Sky Sports.

The Italy international is seemingly surplus to requirements at the Milanese club and has been linked with a potential loan switch to Tottenham Hotspur this week.

However, Mauricio Pochettino has been vocal in his conviction that Spurs will not be adding a defender to their ranks in January – despite injuries to Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld of late.

New Swansea boss Paul Clement has a job on his hands to keep the Welsh side in the Premier League this season but a shock 3-2 win over Liverpool at Anfield last weekend did their chances no harm.

The Liberty Stadium outfit also seem committed to improving the  club’s playing squad, with Tom Carroll and Martin Olsson both signed in the window so far.

Ranocchia would bring experience to the Premier League side in an area of weakness, with Swansea struggling this term at centre-half following the summer sale of Ashley Williams to Everton.
