Swansea City manager Garry Monk has dismissed speculation linking his star striker Wilfried Bony with a move to various clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.
Ivory Coast international centre forward Bony has been a revelation in South Wales since joining for a club record fee of around £12 million last summer, comfortably top scoring as the Welsh club escaped relegation from the Premier League.
With his contract believed to contain a buy-out clause of £19 million, Bony has been linked with a whole host of suitors, but Monk has insisted to Wales Online that his man is not for sale:
“There have been lots of stories, but we’ve had absolutely zero contact from anyone about Wilf.
“And the fact is that as a club, we don’t care anyway.
“We don’t want to lose Wilf. We want him to stay with us and for him to be part of our future.”
Bony had been mooted as a potential option for Arsenal, with the Gunners keen to bring in some competition for overworked first-choice striker Olivier Giroud.
Arsene Wenger may now have to turn his attention elsewhere, however, with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata once again linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium today.
