Premier League giants look set to be priced out of move for Ivorian front man.
Swansea City have told Liverpool and Arsenal that it will take an astronomical fee to prize striker Wilfried Bony away from the Liberty Stadium, the Daily Express reports.
The 25-year-old dented the Champions League duo’s hopes of signing him earlier this year when he put pen-to-paper on a new deal to stay in south Wales.
Bony has been in a rich vein of form this season, netting six times for the Swans so far this season.
And Swans boss Garry Monk fully expects that the Ivorian will still be at the club in the new year unless one of his interested parties can cough up an “astronomical fee” for his services.
“It’s not a concern for me,” Monk said when quizzed about Bony’s future.
“I’m not focused on that at all. I’ve mentioned it many times, and when he signed his new contract, that this [speculation] would still be the case.
“It’s not my focus. He’s our player, a Swansea City player, and I have said many times before in football money does dictate things, but it would take an astronomical, astronomical fee for him to ever go anywhere.
“We’re not a selling club. We don’t need to sell. We are very much committed with our players, they are committed to us and that’s how we move on.”
