Swansea set to sign Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony

Swansea City have been heavily linked with a move for Wilfried Bony over the course of the transfer window.

According to the football transfer rumours in British Media (MCFC Watch), Swansea City are set to sign Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony.

The Ivory Coast international has joined Manchester City from Swansea City for a fee in the region of 33 million euros in January 2015. The 28-year-old has a valid contract with Manchester City until June 2019. In August 2016, Bony was sent to Stoke City on a season-long loan.

Wilfried Bony made 11 appearances across all competitions for Stoke City, scoring two goals.

The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Ivory Coast.

As a member of Ivory Coast national football team, Bony has won 52 caps and has scored 15 goals.

Wilfried Bony is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Manchester City this summer and the list of suitors in the Ivory Coast international continues to grow.

Adding a striker remains Swansea City’s top priority this summer and Paul Clement will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.

The Ivory Coast international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking player Paul Clement wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Paul Clement will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Manchester City striker is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.



Swansea City are in the market for just a handful of statement signings this summer who can improve the first-team.

According to the report in British Media, the deal in principle is already in place for 28-year-old to re-join his former club after an unhappy stint at the Etihad. Fee of around 15 million euros will be considerable loss on what City splashed out for him in summer of 2015.

Wilfried Bony would reportedly be interested in a move this summer, but if Swansea City do want him, they will have to beat those other interested clubs to his signature.
