​Swansea City will be bracing themselves for a busy summer transfer window, with the Premier League club expecting offers to arise for their flourishing England Under-21 centre-back Alfie Mawson.


Mawson has impressed whilst on international duty for Aidy Boothroyd's 'Young Lions' at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Poland, and according to a report published by Daily Mail, the Swans have identified Fenerbahce SK's former Liverpool stalwart Martin Skrtel as a potential replacement if Mawson is lured elsewhere.

The 32-year-old defender joined the Super Lig giants in July 2016 for £5m, although the Turkish outfit are preparing to sell the Slovakian international, with the intention of recouping the majority of the figure to which they paid the Reds for his services.


Skrtel had a lengthy season with his current club last term, appearing on 49 occasions in all competitions, whilst scoring three goals and offering two assists - although it appears that he is indeed surplus to requirement at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.


Swansea boss Paul Clement is eager to attract proven experience in the transfer period and has held talks with ex-Chelsea legend John Terry, who is a free agent as it stands.

Mawson, 23, linked-up at the Liberty Stadium in August 2016 following a £5.5m switch from Championship side Barnsley, going from strength to strength over the course of the previous domestic campaign.


The former Tykes centre-half scored the equaliser for England's Under-21s against Slovakia on Monday in Kielce, an encounter which his side ultimately won 2-1, leaving them top of Group A.

After the final whistle, Mawson enthusiastically conveyed the emotion he felt in scoring such a vital goal for his national set-up:


"It is a night I won't forget in a long time," he claimed. "The first goal for my country? Brilliant! It's come a bit late but it has come. It's a great feeling."
