Swansea are keen to sign Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend after being impressed with the youngsters performances while on-loan at bottom of the table Queens Park Rangers.

The 21-year-old had struggled for force his way into the plans of Andre Villas-Boas and was allowed to make the short move across London in order to join his former manager Harry Redknapp at struggling QPR.

Townsend has made a significant impact at Loftus Road, despite the club still being rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, and has earned rave reviews for his performances since moving in January.

QPR look certain to drop into the Championship but Townsend's reputation has only been enhanced and the Evening Standard believes that Swansea are prepared to make an offer of £5million during the summer.

Townsend had previously been loaned out on eight occasions but this is the first time he has been with a Premier League side and it is clear that he has the talent to perform in the top flight.

He has scored two goals in his nine appearances and has shown that he has the ability to play on either wing, despite being predominantly left-footed.

The England Under-21 international made five appearances for Spurs in the league earlier this season but with the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon , Clint Dempsey and Glyfi Sigurdsson ahead of him, it has been hard to become a regular starter.

Swansea do have impressive options in the wide areas with Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez and Wayne Routledge all performing well this season, but it seems manager Michael Laurdrup would still be interested in recruiting the youngster.

Townsend does have a contract with Tottenham until 2016 but after having a taste of regular first team football he may decide that his future lies away from White Hart Lane.

Redknapp recently suggested that if Townsend returned to Spurs then he would struggle to get in the side because of the strength they already have in the wide areas.

"He's can't take Gareth Bale's place or Aaron Lennon's, that's the problem," Redknapp told westlondonsport.com. "He'll go back to Tottenham and he'll push again next year and I'm sure he'll be in their squad.

"But obviously the kid's got a problem getting in their team because they've got so many fantastic players."
