Liverpool linked to another brilliant forward addition – Suarez replacement?


Super player

Liverpool are reportedly set to battle it out with fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham for the services of Wilfried Bony.

Although no fee has yet to be agreed, Liverpool’s representatives have begun negotiations according to talkSPORT.

Liverpool have joined Tottenham in the race to sign Swansea striker Wilfried Bony.

Spurs have had an £18million bid for the Ivory Coast star rejected by the Swans and the Reds are now ready to beat their Premier League rivals to his signature.

The Ivorian front man had an impressive season for Swansea, scoring 16 league goals in 34 appearances. He joined the Welsh side in 2012 after spending two years at Dutch side Vitesse. Bony has also achieved 28 international caps and played in all three games for the Ivory Coast in the 2014 World Cup, scoring 2 goals.

Spurs have previously been linked with the striker, along with the possible transfers of Michel Form and Ben Davies. Their reported transfer bid valued the striker at around £25 million.

The 25 year old has also been linked with a number of other clubs including Newcastle and Arsenal. However, the player’s agent has already made clear his feelings about a possible move. He was quoted in June as telling The Mirror that:

“The next step for Bony is a top-six team in England or a top team in Germany, Spain or France, or he will stay with Swansea.”

He also quelled speculation linking the player to Newcastle, saying that Bony would only be willing to move to an ambitious club.

“We have a certain strategy. Bony is in a totally different place to Newcastle and wants to move to a club with ambition.”

Liverpool would definitely count among the elite in England and are certainly showing ambition despite the possible loss of their star performer Luis Suarez. The Merseyside club have already began their transfer business by signing Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can. Bony could be viewed as a replacement for the Uruguayan.

They have also been linked with the likes of Lazar Markovic from Benfica, striker Divock Origi and even 23-year-old Mario Balotelli.

Let’s see Bony in action. Liverpool fans: is he up to scratch?

    Liverpool will blow 110m this window and won’t have improved, providing they now buy Bony, Davies and Lovern, this means they will have spent nearly 80m on players from teams that regularly finish mid table in the Premier League. I think take a genius to work out where Liverpool are going finish next season with this lot on board. Add to that Markovich and Origi young players that do have potential, however its another 30m spent on players not yet ready to make the step up. Whoever is in charge of Liverpool’s transfer dealings needs to sacked right now. This club is just adding debt and won’t even have the solace of a top team to show for it.
