Swansea target former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel

Liverpool flop

Swansea are interested in signing Kasımpaşa forward Ryan Babel according to the Daily Mail.

The report states that Swansea targeted Babel in the past before his move to Ajax in January 2013.

The Netherlands international had been closely linked with a move to Beşiktaş but the Black Eagles denied making a bid for the 28-year-old.


The statement read: “The transfer rumour linking Besiktas with Babel is false we have not been in talks with his agent or made an offer.”

The Kasımpaşa forward still has a year left on his contract and scored nine goals and provided five assists in 29 appearances for the Süper Lig outfit this season.

Babel scored a total of 22 goals in 146 appearances for Liverpool between 2007-11 and later joined Kasımpaşa on a free transfer from Ajax in 2013.

The Netherlands international has 14 goals and 12 assists in 59 appearances for the Istanbul based club in all competitions.
