Swans reckon Leeds star will make the Gradel

Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers is making a surprise bid to sign speedy Leeds attacker Max Gradel - and give him a shot at the Premier League.
Rodgers was impressed with Gradel’s form during the Championship campaign and is looking to snap him from the Elland Road club for around £1.5million.
Gradel is also being chased by a couple of French clubs, but the Swans now have the top-flight financial windfall to spend on targets.
Leeds do not want to lose explosive Gradel, but the lure of Premier League football may turn his head.
