THERE is fresh speculation today that Swansea City are preparing a £5million bid for West Ham’s Ravel Morrison.

We reported last month how Swansea City had been touted as potential suitors for the attacker.

Now there are reports that interest could be hotting up.

Morrison has been out on loan at QPR after falling out of favour with West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.

He has shone there, helping QPR win promotion to the Premier League this season through the Championship play-offs.

It means QPR could also be in the hunt to secure his services for their 2014/15 season in the top flight.

But it is thought Morrison would fit the bill for Swansea's decision-makers given that he is an emerging talent who has something to prove in the Premier League.

But Sir Alex Ferguson struggled to control the player when he was at Old Trafford, and with Allardyce also having issues with him, Garry Monk would be brave to take him on.

    He is talented and we have taken troubled players and turned them into solid ones in the past, but at £5m it's a fairly big risk and we really do have higher priorities than midfield to thin about first. Perhaps if we can do our business early and there is something left then it might be worth considering.

    The guy undoubtedly has talent but off the field apparently his antics cannot be controlled so the last thing we would want now is someone who would disrupt the current team. We do need more attacking flair rather than leave everything on Bony's shoulders especially from midfield but personally I don't think this guy fits the bill

    I agree Crojack, besides I can't see young Ravel swapping the bright lights of London for our seaside city

    A £5 m for a troublemaker? And yet another midfielder? Better spend £5 m on De Guzman and sign him permanently.

    Great deal if possible he would flourish in our side
