Castaignos cBBC reporter Richard Askam posted on his Twitter account on Sunday morning that Swansea City had agreed an €8 million fee for the Netherlands U21 international striker, but are yet to agree personal terms.

Castaignos started his career with Feyenoord, netting 15 goals in 42 appearances, before being snapped up by Serie A giants Inter Milan. However his move to Italy turned sour, and after one goal in eight appearances, Castaignos joined Twente in 2012 for €6 million.

Over the past two seasons in the Eredivisie, Castaignos has gained his confidence back, with the 21-year-old netting 14 goals in 31 league appearances last season, taking his tally to 28 goals in 79 games for FC Twente.

The former Feyenoord player is a striker that likes to link up play around the edge of the box, with Castaignos not only scoring goals, but also contributing assists, he set up five goals last season.

Swansea City aren’t the only club to have been linked with Castaignos though, as Liverpool, Everton, and a number of Bundesliga sides, including Wolfsburg, have been credited with interest.
