Tottenham could be about to launch a fresh bid to bring Swansea striker Wilfried Bony to North London, after it emerged that the player wants to move to a bigger club. This has put Tottenham, amongst other clubs, on alert and they are now in contact about a possible transfer according to The Express.
SWANSEA have made contact with Liverpool and Tottenham after relaxing their stance over Wilfried Bony.
Bony has attracted much attention over the summer transfer window, with speculation suggesting that he was a key target for Tottenham. However, a move was complicated by the fact that Swansea were refusing to sell the Ivorian striker for anything other than his release-fee.
With that fee believed to be around £19 million, potential suitors were put off and it looked like Bony would likely be staying at The Liberty Stadium for the upcoming season.
But The Express is now reporting that the 25-year-old striker has told Swansea that he wants to leave the side for a bigger club. This has led to the Welsh outfit re-evaluating their options. Knowing that Bony wants to leave they have since softened their stance and have contacted Tottenham.
Tottenham are in need of a front man. Last year’s signing, Roberto Soldado, largely disappointed in his debut season. The Spanish forward only managed to score six league goals in the entire season. Meanwhile, Emmanuel Adebayor is a more established Premier League striker but he has proved inconsistent at Tottenham since joining in 2012.
Bony would provide a long-term option for the club as they look to push for Champions League football. His strength and physical presence make him a handful for defenders, while his imposing height and skill in the air make him a constant goal threat.
Along with his incredible goal scoring record at Vitesse, where he scored 46 goals in just 65 league appearances, he also impressed in The Premier League last season where he found the net 16 times in a struggling Swansea side.
Let’s see Bony banging in the goals. Tottenham fans: the striker solution?
