West Ham have launched a move for Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony according to the Daily Mail as their injury crisis mounts up.
The report claims that the Hammers have made an enquiry for Ivory Coast international and Slaven Bilic did not deny the rumours in his post-match interview today following the 1-0 victory over Bournemouth yesterday the Premier League.
“Injuries? Transfers? We will try to get one in and the chairmen will be very generous if we can,” he said after the game speaking to Sky Sports cameras.
“Bony is a good player – but we will speak on Monday. If we get one it’s got to be a good one. But if not I have the squad that will fight for West Ham big time.”
West Ham are currently facing a crisis upfront with record signing Andrew Ayew out for four-months and Andy Carroll injured.
Bony is expected to leave City after being dropped from the squad over the last three games under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola.
Bilic could face competition from his ex club Besiktas who are currently in talks with City over the loan transfer of Bony a source close to the Istanbul giants told Emre Sarigul.
Skybet recently slashed odds on Besiktas signing the powerful striker from 19 to 4 as a result of negotiations reaching an advanced stage.
