Argentina star Federico Fernandez had been linked with Swansea, but it now appears that the Welsh giants will not look to bolster their options in the centre-back position.
Speaking to South Wales Evening Post, Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said that: "I think Garry has got his four central defenders and until that changes, that's the way it will stay."
Depth at the back
Although the signature of Fernandez would likely be a progressive move for the club, the Swans already have four more than capable centre-backs on their books in the form of club captain Ashley Williams, Spaniards Chico Flores and Jordi Amat and Kyle Bartley who has recently returned from a loan spell at Birmingham City.
Fernandez made his Argentina debut against Ecuador in 2011 and has gone on to achieve 30 caps for his country.
He made his first World Cup start in Argentina’s 2-1 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina having cemented his place during the World Cup qualifying stages. Fernandez appeared in both Serie A and the Champions League with Napoli last season, impressing with strong performances.
As well as Ferndandez, Swansea had also been linked with Celtic centre-back Virgil van Dijk, but in light of Jenkins’ statement such a move also appears unlikely.
