Swansea fans down in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting excited over the possible return of Wilfried Bony.
Paul Clement’s side are looking for someone to provide cover for Fernando Llorente should he leave this summer. The Spaniard performed exceptionally in his debut season in the Premier League, but has been linked with a switch to champions Chelsea.
Llorente netted an impressive 15 times for the Swans – a number Bony got no where near while on loan with Stoke last term, netting a paltry two for the Potters.
In truth, the Ivorian’s career has plummeted since leaving the Welsh side for Manchester City two years ago. The Stoke loanee made just ten appearances for Mark Hughes’ side, with his last outing way back in December.
The Swans are suggested to be chasing their former talisman, and just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s exactly what the striker has to offer:
The 28 year-old netted 26 times in 54 Premier League outings for the South Wales side before being sold for £28m to City.
Bony cannot get a game for Pep Guardiola’s side and could be available for a cut-price this summer, despite his £15.3m valuation.
Swansea reportedly face competition from West Brom, Marseille, Lille, Besiktas and Fenerbahce, but their affiliation and success with the player could make it easier to sign him once again.
Thoughts? Could Bony be a success or has he lost it? Let us know in the comments…
