Leicester City are set to launch a bid for Manchester City misfit Wilfried Bony, according to the Daily Star.
The Premier League champions have managed to keep hold of Jamie Vardy, but they are still looking to add to their strikeforce.
Bony may not have been a success at the Etihad, but he has previously shown what he can do in the Premier League at Swansea.
Leicester have turned to the Ivory Coast international because they are becoming increasingly frustrated in their pursuit of Watford frontman Troy Deeney.
Watford are refusing to budge on their £30million valuation of the Englishman, who is already in his late twenties.
Bony would cost around £10million less than that, as he clearly has little place in Pep Guardiola’s plans, with the City boss continuing to sound out Nolito about a move.
It’s certainly time for Bony to cut his losses in Manchester and a move to Leicester is not necessarily a drop down; the Foxes are yet to sell any of their star men, so it’s fair to say they have a good chance of another top-four finish next season.
