Swansea City are interested in signing Ghana defender Daniel Opare from German club FB Augsburg in January.
But they could face competition from Everton, Stoke City and RB Leipzig, who are also monitoring him.
The 27-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season and it's believed he's unlikely to stay.
Opare joined Augsburg from FC Porto in 2015, and spent the second part of last season on loan at French club Lens.
Opare has won 16 caps for Ghana and played in the 2014 World Cup alongside Swansea striker Jordan Ayew and his brother, former Swans forward Andre.
