Although the summer transfer window is officially yet to be opened with with World Cup competition ongoing in Brazil, however this has not derailed club’s from going after their potential summer targets many of who are representing their various national team side who are currently featuring at the glamorous football fiesta taking place in Brazil.
Now Fellow North London rival – Tottenham will launch a £19 million offer to beat Arsenal and Liverpool to Swansea’s Wilfried Bony if they are not able to lure Romelu Lukaku away from Chelsea.
Lukaku remains Spurs top target as they look for attacking reinforcements next term. However, Atletico Madrid have so far made a much better offer to Chelsea for the Belgian hitman.
Contrary to recent reports, however, Spurs are not looking to offload Emmanuel Adebayor to boost their bid for Lukaku. Instead, the White Hart Lane outfit are hopeful that Roberto Soldado can be sold to provide additional funds.
Even if that happens, though, Spurs are already preparing for the possibility that Lukaku goes elsewhere. And that has lead new boss Mauricio Pochettino to identify Bony as the next-best thing.
Swansea are reluctant to let the player leave, but Bony’s agent recently revealed he would be interested in a move to a ‘top six club’.
And while Spurs can’t offer Champions League football next term, the lure of Europa League football may be enough for Bony to swap Wales for London.
Bony, who is currently leading the attack upfront for his Ivory Coast team ahead of former Chelsea hitman Didier Drogba, competing at the World Cup has since the start of the tournament bagged a goal for himself while being involved in several assists and attacks for the Ivory Coast outfit.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with Bony who scored the equalizer against Arsenal at the Emirates in a match that ended 2-2. During the last quarter or the just concluded season. Also going on the back of his outstanding first English Premier League season as well as his last season at the Eredivise.
