Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding transfer targets, but has refused to rule out a move for Gabriel Obertan.
The Newcastle winger is said to figure prominently on the Swans' summer shopping list.
Obertan only linked up with Newcastle last summer, penning a five-year contract.
Competition for places at St James' Park is fierce, though, and he slipped behind Hatem Ben Arfa in Alan Pardew's thoughts as the 2011/12 campaign drew on.
It has been suggested that the Magpies may be willing to listen to offers for the former Manchester United player.
Swansea have been linked with an approach, and Laudrup has admitted to being close to making a couple more additions to his squad.
He is, however, keeping his cards close to his chest until deals have been done.
When the Obertan rumour was put to him following a 4-2 friendly win over Blackpool on Tuesday, Laudrup said: "Speculation about players coming in, I don't want to comment on that.
"It is better for me to say I don't comment on rumours, I can comment on things about our players as it is different.
"When something is near or is done then you can ask me all you want."
