Ivorian striker keen to test himself in English football.
Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony has issued a ‘come and get me’ plea to Premier League clubs according to Sky Sports.
The Ivorian striker has been in fine form for his club this season, putting in a string of impressive displays that have attracted the attention of a number of Premier League clubs.
West Ham were thought to be in pole position to sign the player but they now find themselves facing competition from the likes of Chelsea for the player’s signature.
The Hammers are keen to bring in a new striker with Andy Carroll’s loan deal from Liverpool set to come to an end while Chelsea have finally ran out of patience with misfiring striker Fernando Torres.
Bony has admitted that he is eager to make a summer move to Premier League as he looks to test himself at the highest level.
Vitesse are keen to hold onto the player and insist that no formal approach has been made by any club for the player.
Bony insists thought that he remains focused on finishing the season with Vitesse. His goals have put the club in contention of winning the Eredivisie title. There are now only three points separating them from Dutch giants Ajax at the top of the table.
