Swansea City supporters in the Transfer Tavern are delighted that their club is on the verge of re-signing Wilfried Bony.
When Wilfried Bony completed his transfer to Manchester City, the Ivorian was preordained for greatness.
Much to his dismay, the former Swansea striker failed to make a meaningful impression.
The 28-year-old scored 11 goals in 46 games for the Citizens and failed to impress on loan at Stoke last season, scoring twice in 11 appearances for the Potters.
Nevertheless, despite the recent deterioration in Bony’s goal-scoring record, the Ivory Coast international is still undeniably talented.
He’s a superb finisher, displaying a significant degree of ruthlessness in front of goal.
Additionally, he also demonstrates an ability to hold the ball up and bring other teammates into play. Our landlord believes that the 28-year-old will rediscover his best form when he returns to Swansea.
During his first stint with the Welsh club, the Ivorian set the Premier League alight scoring 17 league goals in 34 league games – a ratio of a goal every two games. In fact, Bony finished the 2013-14 campaign having scored 26 goals in 48 games, a truly prolific strike rate. The Ivorian striker left Swansea having scored 35 goals in 70 appearances for the Swans, an imposing total.
If Bony is entrusted with consistent first-team involvement at Swansea – which seems very probable given Llorente’s alleged departure – there is no reason why he can’t revive the goal scoring form that established himself as a fan favourite during his first spell in South Wales.
