Liverpool Prepare To Battle Tottenham For Premier League Striker

Premier League sides in need of goals are willing to test Swansea’s resolve over Wilfried Bony.

Wilfried Bony scored another Premier League goal against West Ham last weekend, and hi asking price climbed a little higher.

Swansea boss Garry Monk has already said it would take an “astronomical offer” to prise the Ivorian striker away from Wales. Both Liverpool and Tottenham have now been linked with Bony, and with both sides in desperate need of a striker, an astronomical bid is not off the cards.

Liverpool saved money by signing a cut-price Mario Balotelli in the summer, a decision that is now haunting them as they scramble around for a replacement to save their season. Tottenham’s striking issues have become so serious that they’ve been forced to turn to Harry Kane.

Swansea would love to keep hold of the striker, but should a bidding war break out between Liverpool and Spurs, they might be able to cash in big time on the striker. A proven Premier League goalscorers is a rarity, and Bony’s transfer fee could easily top £25m.

26-year-old Bony scored an impressive 46 goals in 65 games for Vitesse before moving to Swansea. The Ivorian apparently had an unsuccessful trial at Rafael Benitez’s Liverpool in 2007.
