Swansea City have identified Benfica centre-half Lisandro Lopez as a possible £7 million transfer target and will sell Modou Barrow to a Championship side such as Leeds United for the same price, according to The Sun.

The Liberty Stadium side are doing everything in their power to stave off Premier League relegation, with new boss Paul Clement given transfer funds to spend in January.

The Swans have already added Tom Carroll and Martin Olsson to their ranks this month, with Lopez a possible addition also.

The Argentine defender has played alongside compatriot Federico Fernandez in the past, with the report stating that Clement wants to reunite the South American pair at the Liberty Stadium.

Meanwhile, Barrow is seemingly not part of the new manager’s plans, which could be a real boon for Leeds and their promotion hopes.

The flying winger has showed potential in the Premier League, with the African attacker surely a devastating player in the Championship.

Leeds boss Garry Monk has admitted that he hopes theYorkshire outfit will add two more players to his squad before the end of the month, with Barrow a possible new face at Elland Road.

The report stipulates that a number of other Championship teams are ready to battle the Whites for the winger signature, with Swansea hoping to recoup £7 million for him before Tuesday’s deadline.
