Portuguese news outlet Record states that Swansea City and Liga Portugal side Moreirense have

come to an agreement over the transfer of midfielder Goncalo Franco.

The 23-year-old has left the club’s pre-season training camp to seal a switch to the Championship, it is said.

He was a key player for Moreirense but with a year left on his contract,

the club look to have taken the opportunity to cash in now. Swansea City

fans can be forgiven if they hadn’t heard of Franco before rumours of his impending arrival.

The midfielder has spent his entire career to date in his native Portugal, spending time in the Boavista,

Porto and Leixoes academies. It was with the latter where he made his breakthrough,

then joining current club Moreirense in 2020 after six senior appearances.

For the club, he has now played 129 times, chipping in with nine goals and six assists in the process.

Franco mainly plays as a central midfielder but is comfortable in a deeper role in defensive

midfield and slightly further up the pitch too. That will give Williams some valuable flexibility

in the middle of the park with the former Portugal U20 international very much an option for

the present and future. other recruit areas. A midfield addition certainly won’t go amiss at the Swansea

.com Stadium but some might have thought that the club would prioritise other areas before bringing

in another body in the middle of the park.
