Michu hopes Swansea City target Liverpool forward Iago Aspas in the January transfer window.

• Hicks: Credible result for Swans

Aspas, 26, signed for Liverpool from Celta Vigo in the summer for around 7 million pounds but has made just four Premier League starts since the switch.

And should the Spaniard seek a loan switch away from Anfield then Michu would welcome his compatriot at the Liberty Stadium.

Michu said in the Daily Mirror: “We [the Welsh club's Spanish players] are hoping he can come here on loan. It would be a pleasure to play with him. Iago has had injuries, but he has quality. He deserves to play in the Premier League.

“He has been unlucky. At Liverpool, they have Luis Suarez and [Daniel] Sturridge, who have scored a lot of goals. Suarez is, along with Diego Costa and others, one of the best strikers in Europe.”
