Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to tie down the futures of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Scott Sinclair.
Sigurdsson is currently on-loan with Swansea until the end of the season from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.
The Icelander has made a massive impact in South Wales since his move and has scored five goals in nine Premier League games.
And after his brace helped Swansea to a 3-0 win at Fulham, Rodgers underlined his determination to land Sigurdsson on a permanent deal.
"We have spoken to his agent and I've made the chairman aware of my feelings but, ultimately, it's whether Hoffenheim want to sell him," he said.
"We needed a goal-scoring midfielder and he has fitted in well with this group of players."
Likewise, Rodgers is hoping that winger Sinclair will commit his future to the club and sign a new deal.
"There have been initial discussions," he said.
"He's very happy here. It's not been put on the back-burner.
"He knows he's in a great place to develop so, hopefully, we can agree a new deal."
