Marcelo Biesla set to take over Swansea City after the end of the season

A number of top English Premier League clubs are set to change a lot going into the next season but the teams at the other end of the points table also have an equal amount of work to do before the start of the next season.

And Welsh outfit Swansea City are set to land an experienced manager to take over the club come to the end of this season.

Swansea City, who are playing in the top flight of English football ever since manager Brendan Rodgers got them there have had a rather eventless season.

They have done enough to secure top-flight status for the 6th consecutive year but they had to go through a lot of trouble on their way.

Gary Monk, who started the season in charge of the Liberty stadium outfit was sacked in January and was replaced by Francesco Guidolin whose best result came in the 1-0 victory over Chelsea last weekend.

But Guidolin is set to be released at the end of the season and is widely tipped off to take over the Italian national team after Antonio Conte completes his move to Chelsea after the EURO16.

It was previously reported that the previous manager Brendan Rodgers was the front-runner for landing the job in the summer however, it is now understood that a new name is ringing on the horizon.

Former Argentina boss Marcelo Biesla who lived up to his nickname of ‘El Loco’ by quitting his job at Marseille after just a game this season, is now understood to be close to landing the job at the Liberty Stadium.

According to the Mirror, US businessmen Jason Levein and Stephen Kaplan have been in talks with the club for over a year, and a deal of around £ 140 million is set to be finalized before the end of the season.

And it is understood that the 60-year old Argentine can now be afforded after the giant American takeover the club will face this summer.

The rumors are understood to be so strong that it was reported that Biesla has already started assessing the squad at Swansea and is preparing a wish-list for the summer transfer window.

Biesla, who was also scouted by West Ham before the start of the current season is keen on a move to the Premier League and Swansea City will hope that he will use all his experience to help the side to a strong position come to the end of the next season.

Do you think Biesla will help Swansea to a top half of the table finish next season in the Premier League?
