Wednesday's Forestieri is wanted by Swansea and Waghorn could still come to Bramall Lane

Sheffield Wednesday could offload another forward from their wage bill by selling Fernando Forestieri to Swansea City, after reports that the Swans are interested in the Argentinian forward.

Forestieri has impressed so far in preseason for the Owls and is a proven Championship player that could help Graham Potter's Swans bounce straight back into the Premier League.

The wait for a new signing at Hillsborough continues, but Jos Luhukay is rumoured to be chasing Peterborough United defender Jack Baldwin.
