Swansea should turn their attentions to this former striker
Swansea City have made a decent start to their Premier League campaign. After claiming a terrific draw on the road against Southampton on the opening day, the Swans were then beaten at home by Manchester United, but responded in terrific fashion as they went to Selhurst Park and beat Crystal Palace 2-0.
After losing their star player Gylfi Sigurdsson earlier on in the window to Everton, the club have been trying to identify targets to bring in. Reports circulating are that Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches will be coming into the club to replace Sigurdsson, but in other news it seems like Chelsea are looking to take Spanish striker Fernando Llorente to Stamford Bridge.
The striker played a vital role in Swansea surviving in the Premier League last season scoring 15 goals in just 33 games, but will the lure of playing for the current Premier League champions and going to play under Antonio Conte be too tempting?
If Llorente is to leave the Liberty Stadium, then the Swans should turn their attentions to former striker Wilfried Bony.
Wilfried Bony – The Ivory Coast striker joined Manchester City from Swansea in 2015, but has struggled for regular game time at the Etihad Stadium having made just 36 Premier League appearances for the Citizens.
His last season at the Liberty stadium saw him score 11 goals and many Swansea fans were disappointed to see him leave the club.
Having fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City, Bony is going to struggle to get a run in the first team so a move back to South Wales could help him rekindle his form and also help Swansea this season push on up the Premier League.
Swansea City fans would you like to see Wilfried Bony back in a Swansea shirt? Would he be the ideal replacement for Fernando Llorente if he were to leave? Let us know in the comments section below…
