Swansea City Confirm The Capture Of Dutch Dazzler: What Will He Bring To The Table?

Swansea City have made their first signing of the January transfer window in the form of Luciano Narsingh from PSV Eindhoven for a fee around £4m. The 26-year-old becomes Paul Clement’s first signing at Swansea. The Dutch international was a target of the former manager Bob Bradley. Narsingh has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal to stay at the Liberty Stadium but now has a big challenge to keep the club in the Premier League.

Of course, this deal is a big statement from a club who have been languishing in the danger zone since the start of the season. Narsingh, a 16-time capped Dutch international and two-time Eredivisie winner, made a big call to join a side who are one of the favourites for getting demoted. So, can he make a big difference at the Welsh club? Well, he certainly does have the calibre.

£4m is not at all a big fee for a player who is capped 16 times for a team like Netherlands and has two prestigious Eredivisie titles on his CV. His contract with the Dutch giants was supposed to expire in the summer of 2017 which is why he was available for such an astoundingly small fee.

Eredivisie has always been the hunting ground for the Premier League sides and not many players from the Dutch League have flopped in the Premier League. Memphis Depay is one of those rare exceptions. Narsingh does have the quality to make a big difference at the Liberty Stadium.

He has blistering pace in his locker and can ply his trade on either flank. All of the Swansea wingers are pretty average and Narsingh’s quality and experience could prove to be pivotal for them. Unlike most modern day wingers, the Dutchman can deliver accurate crosses into the box for his teammates, which is well reflected from his 1.2 successful crosses this season.

The 26-year-old is blessed with brilliant ball control and jaw-dropping dribbling ability and has made as many as 1.6 dribbles every game this season. Narsingh boasts good vision and has made as many as 1.7 key passes every game this season.

The two-time Eredivisie winner knows where the goal is and has an eye for setting up assists for his teammates. He has managed to find the back of the net 26 times for PSV till date while setting up 31 goals from 159 games. So, all things added up, this move seems to be one that would be propitious for Swansea City.
