Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could make an approach for Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony this summer, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The powerful Ivory Coast international has had a solid first season in the Premier League, having joined Swansea from Eredivisie side Vitesse just last summer.
The 25-year-old had a superb goalscoring record in Dutch football, and has shown plenty of promise in his first campaign in the English game. Arsenal have watched the player before during his time in Holland, and are now ready to renew their interest as they eye new signings upfront in the upcoming summer transfer window. With only Olivier Giroud to pick from upfront this season, Wenger’s side have looked short of depth in that position, and Bony is the latest player to attract the Gunners’ interest, with big names such as Diego Costa and Jackson Martinez also being linked with the club in recent times. Bony’s played well this season and he’s the kind of player Wenger likes, an Arsenal source explained. “I don’t know if he’s a top priority, but he could be a good option and cheaper than some of the others being mentioned. “
