Swansea City’s chairman Huw Jenkins has said that the club are becoming “frustrated” in their pursuit of striker Wilfried Bony, Sky Sports reports.

While the club are close to agreeing personal terms with the striker, the Swans are finding it difficult to agree a fee with Bony’s club Vitesse Arnhem.

Reports suggested that the Swans had offered Arnhem £10.2 million for the striker but the Dutch club are understood to want more money for one of their star players.

Jenkins has now admitted that Swansea may have to look elsewhere for a new striker as Arnhem continue to play hard ball.

“It’s very difficult and gradually we are becoming frustrated,” Jenkins told De Telegraaf.

“If it does not work with Bony we need to go for our plan B.”

Bony has refused to comment on his future and reluctantly joined up with his team mates for pre-season training at Vitesse Arnhem.

The striker has said in the past that he would like to move to the Welsh club and Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has said that he would like to see Bony playing at the Liberty Stadium next season.

Swansea were also interested in FC Twente forward Nacer Chadli but Jenkins has said that the club will look for other targets after Chadli said that he wants to stay in the Netherlands.
