Swansea hope to complete an ?8million move for Chievo striker Alberto Paloschi in the next few days, Press Association Sport understands.

The 26-year-old has emerged as Swansea's number one striker target with new head coach Francesco Guidolin understood to be a big admirer of his compatriot.

Paloschi has been capped by Italy at Under-21 level and has scored over 40 goals since joining Chievo from Parma in 2011.

He has scored eight goals in 21 games for Chievo this season and it is understood discussions are ongoing between the clubs and Paloschi's representatives.

Swansea, who are four points above the Barclays Premier League drop zone, have identified the signing of a striker as their top priority in the January transfer window.

Only bottom club Aston Villa have managed fewer than Swansea's 22 goals in 23 games.

However, Swansea face competition from Sampdoria for Paloschi's signature, according to reports in the Italian media.

If Paloschi were to arrive in south Wales, it would probably signal the departure of Bafetimbi Gomis from the Liberty Stadium, with Newcastle reported to be among those interested in the France forward.
