Swansea City have tracked Charlton Athletic striker Macauley Bonne in the summer transfer window.

However, it appears unlikely that the Swans will make a move for the frontman who is likely to be out of their price range.

Steve Cooper is determined to add at least one forward to his ranks having seen Rhian Brewster return to Liverpool in the summer.

However, speaking after the 0-0 draw with Birmingham City at the Liberty Stadium, the head coach said his side had hit something of a brick wall when it came to bringing in a forward.

When asked if there has been any progress on signing a frontman, Cooper said: "No. I'd love to say yes, but there's not. It's difficult to get the player we want when we haven't got any money to spend. It's a tight market."

Reports in the national media recently stated that Swansea - along with Huddersfield Town, Barnsley and Queens Park Rangers - are among a clutch of clubs interested in Bonne.

It's suggested Lee Bowyer's side have already rejected two bids for Bonne, the second of which is thought to be worth around £1.5m from QPR.

And given the finances involved, it appears unlikely that Swansea will realistically be in the running to strike a deal with the Addicks for Bonne.

The Zimbabwe international netted 11 goals in his 33 Championship outings for Charlton last term.

Premier League clubs fear PR backlash if they do not bailout EFL clubs

  Premier League clubs fear PR backlash if they do not bailout EFL clubs EXCLUSIVE BY SAMI MOKBEL AND MATT HUGHES: Premier League clubs fear a PR backlash if they do not organise a speedy cash bailout for financially troubled EFL clubs. Sportsmail understands there are opposing opinions among top-flight teams on providing financial relief and talks are ongoing between the leagues. But EFL chairman Rick Parry said Wednesday he remained 'optimistic' of finding a solution.While some clubs are sceptical about providing EFL clubs with a handout, others — primarily the smaller clubs — are far more sympathetic.

Macauley Bonne ' s late equaliser boosts Charlton ' s Championship survival bid and leaves Wigan unsure of their second-tier place. Kieffer Moore saw a header well saved by Dillon Phillips, but the ball rebounded off the Addicks keeper and onto the woodwork for Lowe to nod in from close range.

Swansea City are held to a goalless draw at home by Birmingham City in the Championship. Each team had looked solid defensively as they kept clean sheets on the opening weekend and they were limited to one shot on target each during the first half an hour on this occasion.

Meanwhile, Swansea are understood to be targeting Brighton man Viktor Gyokeres.

Cooper is also keen to add an experienced centre-back to his squad before the conclusion of the transfer window.
