Manchester City and Chelsea are believed to have scouted the Ivory Coast international in Swansea’s recent 4-1 loss at Liverpool – with the Reds themselves also believed to be weighing up a potential move for the 26 year old.

Bony finished 2014 as the highest scoring player of the calendar year and could be in line for a big money switch to a Premier League giant as they look to push on in the second half of the season.

“As things stand we have not had any contact from anyone with respect to Wilfried,” the Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said reports the Daily Mirror. “It’s just speculation linked to a player who is the top scorer in 2014 in the Premier League – which is perfectly natural.

“First and foremost I will consider everything that arises at the time. But as of yet we haven’t got anything to consider. Players move around – that’s a fact of life.”

The 26 year old arrived from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2013 for £12 million but may now cost upwards of £30 million after some stellar performances for the Welsh side.

“The one thing I’ve learned over time is never say never in football. But officially at the moment we haven’t had any contact from Manchester City or anyone else about Wilfried,” said Jenkins.

“We are in the same position as any other club. Things are as they are. No one wants to lose players and if you are to lose players it has to be for the right offer.
