Swansea City Plot An Ambitious Move For This Premier League Legend: Can Clement Pull This Off?

Chelsea skipper John Terry has recently revealed that he will quit the club at the end of the season. However, he has not announced his retirement and is still ready to play the sport for at least another year. This has seen a number of MLS clubs and clubs from China scout for him for a move this summer but according to reports today, English clubs West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City are front runners for his signature.

The Baggies have already taken the first step for his signature but Paul Clement, who worked with the 36-year old defender in his time at the Stamford Bridge, is also looking to lure him to the Liberty Stadium at the end of the season. However, it is only going to happen if the Swans are able to beat the drop this term. So, is John Terry s good addition for Swansea if they are not relegated?

Terry is reportedly demanding a weekly wage of £80,000, which could be a problem for Swansea but Terry could well be a worthy expenditure. Coming on a free, the 36-year-old will add invaluable experience and leadership to the Swansea squad, something they have missed this season.

The Welsh outfit are currently in the 18th place in the points table, two points off safety, but they have not been able to pick points consistently, which has affected their chances of moving out of the bottom-3. They have a decent squad at their disposal and if they do manage to end the season on a high and stay up, they have a great chance of nicking Terry away from the Baggies this summer.

With 68 goals conceded, the most in the English top flight and a negative goal difference of 31, makes Swansea one of the worst defences in England and Clement has to work hard in the summer to change this approach. He needs some solidity at the back and a player who can lead the backline for his side and there are very few options better than John Terry.

The likes of Federico Fernandez, Alfie Mawson, Mike can der Hoon, and Jordi Amat are the options in the current squad for Paul Clement so it is not a surprise that the manager is looking high and dry already for defensive additions to make the squad a bit stronger at the back. He will find it hard to spend on top class talent and Terry could be his best bet this summer.

The Swans may be active in the domestic cup competitions but the Premier League will be the most important competition for them next season and Terry, even at 36, is capable of starting most of the 38 league games next season. Clement may need a strong defender for other competitions but the Chelsea man could be his defender in chief next season and can completely turn the fortunes of the club. However, they will first have to make sure that they do not get relegated, to be able to lure Terry to the club. Do you think John Terry is an option for Paul Clement this summer?
