Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has told BBC Wales that they have received no offers for any of their top players and that Paul Clement wants to add to his squad, not take away from it.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed his club's interest in Abraham, but he admitted that the aforementioned arrivals from the Championship would also be keen to bring in the prolific forward.

But despite the evident attention from Ronald Koeman's men, who are able to offer Europa League football, the Icelandic worldwide is not itching to leave The Liberty Stadium and was recently slapped with a £40m price tag, according to The Liverpool Echo.

The teenage sensation joined Bristol City on a season-long loan from Chelsea past year and bagged a remarkable 23 league goals to help fire the Robins to safety.

But Swansea stand a good chance due to the fact that their manager Paul Clement has a good relationship with officials at Chelsea, having worked in their academy, as well as having held the post of assistant manager. If you look at the options which have been publicised, (they are) Brighton, Newcastle and ourselves.

"I'm not trying to leave, not desperate to go or anything". The 31-year-old has one year left on the deal he signed in 2014, but spent last season on loan at Marseille and is nearing a move to Galatasary in Turkey.

If something for Butler can't be worked out, the team will likely focus its attention on signing Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz. However, it's testament to his own individual brilliance that his stock wasn't significantly affected by his team's performance.

"We will do our best to add to the team, not take away from it".

"Those are our main focuses, but there may be one or two other areas if some fringe players leave the club, as some a year ago didn't get enough game time".

'Gomis (moving) to Galatasaray is possible, we have been talking, ' Jenkins said.

"We are well covered in that area and quite strong but I know there is interest with Paul and he spoke with John and his agent himself".

'The main positions we are looking for (with the way that we play) is a central midfielder and a second striker.
