Swansea City are not looking to sell Spanish striker Michu according to Huw Jenkins. Reports over the weekend said that the club had agreed a deal to sell Michu to Italian side Napoli but the Welsh club have denied that is the case.

Those reports even went as far as claiming that Michu was in Italy and had undergone a medical with Napoli, ahead of a move to the Serie A outfit.

It is thought that this speculation has arisen following last week’s signing of French striker Bafetimbi Gomis. However, Jenkins said that although there has been interest in Michu’s situation nothing has been decided,  speaking to the South Wales Evening Post Jenkins said :

“If the reports are right, there seems to be a lot of interest in Michu.

From the club’s point of view, I can tell you that we have not received any enquiries about Michu.

The only thing I would say is that I am sure Garry (Monk) will meet with Michu and discuss things with him when he reports back.”

Michu 28, still has two years left on his current deal with Swansea and it remains unclear whether he wants to see that contract out. His debut season in England was fantastic with him scoring over 20 goals but the Spain international suffered an injury hit second campaign last season which limited him to just 15 starts and only two goals.

Another Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has also been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium with Everton thought to be keen on Ivorian striker. It remains to be seen whether Swansea would sell both Michu and Bony without replacing them and that was further complicated last week when Swansea target Michy Batshuayi joined French side Marseille after turning down a move to South Wales.
