Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins says that the club have received no firm bids for ‘priceless’ Gylfi Sigurdsson and are looking to keep both him and last season’s top-scorer Fernando Llorente at the club.

, but the Swans’ chairman insists the club are looking to add to their attacking options, rather than sell.

“We’ve not had any firm bids and if we ever get any firm bids then we will deal with them in the proper way,” Jenkins told Sky Sports News HQ.

“Our aim is to try and keep Gylfi and Fernando, keep our better players and to make sure we can add to Paul’s [Clement] squad.

“It’s hard to suggest what sort of value Gylfi has in today’s market, but to us he is priceless and we’ve got to make sure we do everything in our power to make sure he stays with us.”

Swansea want to sign Chelsea’s England Under-21 striker Tammy Abraham on loan but face competition from two Premier League rivals.

Abraham scored 26 goals for Bristol City in the Championship last season and Jenkins said: “Paul knows him well from Chelsea.

“If you look at the options which have been publicised, [they are] Brighton, Newcastle and ourselves.

“So it is left to Tammy and his family to decide where he wants to go next. They know we are in the mix and we will keep our fingers crossed that he chooses us.”

One player that does look to be on the way out of Swansea is Bafetimbi Gomis. Gomis spent last season on loan at Marseille, and reports have linked him with a permanent move to Galatasaray this summer.

“Gomis to Galatasaray is possible, we have been talking,” Jenkins said.

“His intention is to move away from the club and when we can find a solution that suits both parties then we will do that and move forward.”
