Man City agree £30m fee with Swansea for Liverpool and Chelsea target Wilfried Bony
Champions Manchester City look set to win the race for in-demand striker Wilfried Bony after they reportedly agreed a £30m fee with Swansea City.
The Ivory Coast international is about to get out on international duty with prospective new City team-mate Yaya Toure, but City are keen to tie-up a deal to sign him in the current transfer window.
Swansea have accepted a £30m bid from City, claims the Daily Mirror.
The 26-year-old is now in “advanced talks” with Manuel Pellegrini’s side, according to The Sun.
He is expected to sign a four-year deal worth £100,000-a-week at the Etihad Stadium.
City were keen to bring in a new striker this month after injuries to Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic saw James Milner deployed up front in recent weeks.
Alvaro Negredo was never replaced after his move to Valencia, but Bony’s arrival will take Pellegrini’s striker pool back up to four, which is important given that he often plays with two forwards.
