ADO Den Haag midfielder Jens Toornstra has revealed he would be open to joining Swansea amid speculation linking him with a move to South Wales.
Dutch football magazine Voetbal International reported earlier this week the Swans have identified Toornstra and ADO team-mate Christian Kum as potential summer transfer targets.
The reports claimed manager Brendan Rodgers and chief scout David Leadbeater recently visited Den Haag to watch the players in action.
Toonstra, who has previously been linked with AZ Alkmaar and FC Twente, is contracted at ADO until 2013 but is not ruling out a Swansea move, and has voiced admiration for their free-flowing style of play.
He told NUSport: "If Swansea are (interested), then I would take that chance. It's a nice club and they play Dutch football."
ADO captain and central defender Kum is out of contract in the summer and has previously turned down a new deal at the club and an offer from NEC Nijmegen.
Swansea have previously dipped into the Dutch transfer market, with Michel Vorm and Kemy Agustien already on their books.
