DUTCH international Jordy Clasie is the latest name to be linked with a move to Swansea City.

The 22-year-old playmaker has just enjoyed a fine season in his homeland, helping Feyenoord qualify for the Champions League as they finished second in the Eredivisie.

And according to reports in Holland, Swansea boss Garry Monk is keen to bring Clasie to the Premier League.

However, Swansea could face a battle to get him, with Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal all being linked with a move for Clasie this summer.

    I can't seem him giving up the chance to play in the C.

    Actually I can see him leaving Feyenoord for a non-champions league team, plenty of other player have made similar moves at that age. What I can't see if him moving to a mid-table team who are unlikely to be able to offer him much more than Feyenoord could.
