Chico set to sign
Swansea are set to complete the signing of Genoa defender Chico Flores for a fee in the region of £3million.
Swans boss Michael Laudrup has already signed him on one occasion, when he was in charge of Real Mallorca, and he looks set to link up with him again at the Liberty Stadium.
The 25-year-old central defender spent last season on loan with Mallorca but they were unable to make the deal permanent and he returned to Genoa to weigh up his future.
Swansea are now said to be well down the line with the deal and it will come as a big surprise if Laudrup does not make the Spaniard his first signing for the club.
Laudrup was keen to land a new centre half after Steven Caulker returned to Spurs and hopes Flores will be the perfect replacement.
