West Ham and Swansea reportedly battle to sign Ivory Coast international

West Ham United and Swansea are reportedly keen on luring Manchester City striker Wilfred Bony. After failing to establish himself at Manchester City, Bony spent this season on loan with Stoke City, for whom he has made only 11 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.

Though the Ivory Coast international cost City £28 million to purchase in 2015, they will be willing to sell for a fee of around £15 million with add on fees during the summer.

Both Swansea and West Ham are looking for additional attacking options next season after disappointing seasons.

Swansea flirted with relegation up until this week while West Ham failed to build upon the progress that they had made last term.

The Swans could be set to lose Gylfi Sigurdsson during the summer and will need new players who are capable of scoring and creating goals. As for West Ham, they need new forwards after unconvincing form from Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll this season.
