Back when Swansea City were a Premier League club, they spent plenty of money trying to find a regular goalscorer who could replicate the short success of Michu.
One of those was Borja Baston, the Spaniard arriving in a £16m deal in 2016 as the Swans spent a club-record fee on a player they hoped would help them stay in the Premier League.
That didn’t happen as he proved to be anything but Premier League ready, managing just one goal that season before spending the previous two campaigns back in Spain.
He’s since returned to Swansea this summer and scored his first goal in over 1000 minutes for the club in the 2-1 win over Hull City on the opening day of the season.
However, it appears he could still be on the edge of an exit, as newspaper Heraldo report that Baston was offered to Huesca this summer.
The La Liga2 side are looking to add a striker to their squad ahead of next season, and the newspaper says they received ‘juicy’ offers from several players, Baston among them.
There’s no suggestion there was contact with Swansea, just that Baston was a player offered to Huesca, alongside Rayo Vallecano and Cadiz.
But, Heraldo make it clear that the striker position is still one the club are looking to reinforce in, so there’s every chance they could turn to Baston again before the close of the window.
