The Anfield and White Hart Lane sides, both in need of an effective goal-scorer, will test the Welsh side’s resolve with a January bid though boss Garry Monk has stated it would require an “astronomical” fee for the club to sell their star striker.

The 26 year old has proven very effective since moving to Swansea City from Vitesse Arnhem in a £12m switch in July 2013, netting 32 goals in 53 starts.

Brendan Rodgers has seen summer acquisitions Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli struggle for goals whilst Daniel Sturridge has missed much of the season through injury.

White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino has seen Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado net just three times between them this season.

Bony may well feel the time is right to consider a move to a ‘bigger’ club though with neither side being all that well placed in terms of a push for a top four finish there may be scope for alternative suitors with this source pointing out Man City are also keen.
