Swansea have made Graham Potter their first choice to take over as manager, according to Sky sources.
The Ostersunds FK head coach could be appointed at the Liberty Stadium by the end of the week.
The 42-year-old has been of interest to a number of English clubs due to his success with the Swedish club over the last seven years.
His Ostersunds side won the Swedish Cup last season after successive promotions in 2012 and 2013 put them in the Swedish top flight - Allsvenskan - for the first time in their history.
His assistant manager Billy Reid actually turned down the chance to speak to Swansea about taking the helm there in 2010 while he was in charge at Hamilton Academical.
Swansea have been searching for a new manager after Carlos Carvalhal was not given the chance to continue, having taken over in December but failed to keep them in the Premier League.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this week that former Reading boss Jaap Stam has been under consideration as well as ex-Wales and Sunderland manager Chris Coleman.
