SWANSEA want Louis van Gaal to save them from the drop, according to reports.
The rock-bottom Welshmen sacked Paul Clement yesterday ahead of a crucial clash against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.
And according to The Mirror, Swans chiefs think former Manchester United chief Van Gaal is the man to save their season.
A manager with Premier League experience is believed to be a must, with Slaven Bilic and Ronald Koeman also on the radar.
But Welsh tactician Tony Pulis is not expected to land the role despite his reputation as a fire fighter.
Van Gaal has not managed since being axed by United in 2016 but claimed the right job could bring him back into football at the weekend.
In a timely announcement,the Dutchman said: “I said I will probably not manage a club any more. I would make one exception.
“If a big English club comes for me, I would do it. Because then I can get the chance to get one over Manchester United.”
The Swans host Palace on Saturday and may already have a new man in charge.
But club stalwart Leon Britton is ready to take over as caretaker if needed for the must-win clash.
Swansea have just 12 points from 18 games this season – leaving them five points behind the Eagles and four adrift of safety.
