The 26 year old was the top goalscorer of in the calendar year of 2014 with 20 goals, and Manchester City have expressed serious interest in acquiring the services of the striker.
ESPN report that while The Swans are holding out for a £30m deal for their forward, Pellegrini’s side are stalling over the price due to complications concerning their restriction of a £49m net spend by UEFA as a result of Financial Fair Play rules.
The forward has so far scored nine goals in 16 league appearances for Swansea this season, and will be leaving for the African Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, meaning he may be unavailable for league action until mid-February.
It seems the deal rests on whether Manchester City are willing to pay such a price for Swansea City’s prized asset.
