Liverpool hope to bolster their strikeforce with the summer acquisition of Swansea City forward Wilfried Bony, [football] direct news understands. A source close to Anfield told FDN the Reds are mindful of the fact that they lack quality cover and competition for established front-two Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Spaniard Iago Aspas has failed to impress in his first Premier League campaign and could be sacrificed when the transfer window reopens, and boss Brendan Rodgers wants more options up front in order to balance domestic commitments with his first Champions League campaign. Bony has been in prolific form for the Welsh club this term, notching 24 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions following last summer’s 12million arrival from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem. Swansea are likely to hold out for a significant profit after seeing the hitman become one of the leading operators outside of the top-four and Liverpool could have a fight on their hands to land him in the coming weeks.
