Clement: Swansea Is Not A Hopeless Situation

share on:

Paul Clement has stated the situation at Swansea is not hopeless and he’ll work towards improving his squad till deadline day.

Luciano Narsingh, Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll have all signed for Swansea, with Clement hoping to steer his team away from the bottom of the table.

The former Bayern Munich assistant manager, who refused to discuss reported interest in Arouna Kone of Everton and Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa, also stated that he wants to keep Wayne Routledge and Federico Fernandez with more incomings likely at the Liberty Stadium.

“It does not look hopeless, one [point] behind the team outside the relegation zone and not far behind the teams just above that as well,” Clement said ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Liverpool.

“That can change very quickly. 90-95 percent is thinking about bringing in players now to have an impact. But it would be naive to not think beyond that, just from an economic point of view.

“It is a difficult period now. We are not close [to announcing more signings], but we have targets and we are monitoring that on a daily basis because there is a lot of other things that can affect whether you do those deals or not. It is possible some of those things may run right to the very last days of the window.

“I am using all networks I have built up here and in France, Spain and Germany. You establish lots of relationships in football and the staff I work with here bring their expertise to the table to try and improve.

“Wayne is a good player and I don’t see him going anywhere – I want him to stay. And there’s no thought of doing anything with Fernandez. I like him. I think he is a good player and he will be staying with us.”
