After seeing their bank balance boosted by something in the region of £28m, Swansea will embark on an almighty shopping spree as they set about replacing Manchester City-bound Wilfried Bony.
Ancillary frontman Bafetimbi Gomis may also be on the way out, with Crystal Palace reportedly willing to match the Swans’ £8m valuation of the Frenchman, meaning the signing of at least one striker is paramount.
But who might they be signing? And where else will they be looking to strengthen?
If the answers to these questions are ones you cannot find, continue to scroll downwards dear reader.
First target is believed to be Stuttgart schemer Maxim, who will cost a reported £5m.
The Romanian’s Bundesliga exploits last term, in which he fired nine goals and assisted 11 more, attracted overtures from Liverpool and Garry Monk is thought to be a long-term admirer.
Full-back is another area the south Wales club wish to strengthen and this PSV speedster is capable of slotting in on both flanks.
The Colombian is primarily right-sided and has been associated with moves to bigger clubs than Swansea – 19/4 to beat Chelsea next – in the recent past.
Arias’ ability in possession is as impressive as his pace; he boasts an 85.4 per cent pass completion rate so far this term, having averaged 41.2 passes per outing.
Such stats would compliment the Swans’ short-passing, ball-retaining style of play.
Burnley are adamant that the former Southampton youth won’t be sold in January, despite the fact that he’ll be a free agent in the summer.
But presented with the choice of £7m now, or nothing in six months time, when relegation remains an almost equally likely eventuality with or without Ings, the Clarets board may change their stance.
A move to a club much bigger than Swansea is likely to lead to the marginalisation of the 22-year-old, especially if he didn’t do the business immediately.
Six goals and three assists in his maiden Premier League campaign suggests he can cut it in the top flight, but a direct move to one of the division’s big guns is beyond him at this stage.
