Everton, Newcastle, Swansea and Anzhi Makhachkala chasing Wilfried Bony

    Newcastle are chasing Wilfried Bony but face competition from Everton, Swansea and Anzhi Makhachkala for the highly-rated Vitesse Arnhem striker.

    Alan Pardew is keen to add a top-quality forward to his squad and the Mapgies have stepped up their interest in Bony, tabling a £12million bid for the Ivorian.

    However, talkSPORT understands Vitesse are holding out for £15 million for the 24-year-old, who scored 31 goals in the Dutch top-flight last season and is now keen to test himself in the Premier League.

    That has opened the door for Russian side Anzhi, who have big money to spend and could easily meet Vitesse’s valuation, while Everton and Swansea are also monitoring Bony’s situation.

    West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for the former Sparta Prague man in the past, but their interest has cooled following the permanent signing of Andy Carroll from Liverpool.

    Everton were linked with the striker back in March and a top quality striker will be at the top of Roberto Martinez plans.  There were rumours that David Moyes was very close to signing Bony before pulling out in January.

    1. I love how agents mention a number of clubs to try and declare interest or push clubs they have talked to into a decision.

      As a Newcastle fan I just cant see us putting a bid in of 12 million unless we feel for sure someone has already to put higher bid in (remember rooney)

      I don’t think JOKE inear will have heard of him unless it was in one of his weekly calls to SirAlex.

      on a different note Newcastle should be looking to sign more players like this lad

      “come on bony lad” its got a ring it but I don’t think there’s Newcastle fan in the world thinks this deal would happen.

      in fact its so unrealistic even our evening chronicle isn’t reporting it and they are wrong 100% of the time despite knowing a club source ??

      Everton to sign him you know better than me but I dont think so

      • We have been linked for a while, but I very much doubt it will happen!

        i very much doubt Kinear will know any strikers outside the Premier league!!!! Good luck to you this season mate….. I think with the clowns above you may need it!
