West Brom eye Man City striker swoop

West Brom are being linked with a summer swoop to sign Manchester City’s fringe striker Wilfried Bony.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis is desperate to bolster his forward line in the transfer window as he only has Salomon Rondon, Hal Robson-Kanu and youngster Jonathan Leko at his disposal looking ahead to next season.

He has already been linked with several forwards, including Leicester’s Ahmed Musa, since the end of last term with Bony the latest name to enter the frame.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international has endured a disappointing spell since moving to the Etihad Stadium in a £25million deal in January 2015 on the back of his successful near two-year spell at Swansea, where he scored 35 goals in 70 appearances.

Bony has managed just 10 goals in 46 outings for City and endured a nightmare season-long loan at Stoke City last term where he only scored twice and struggled to feature under Potters boss Mark Hughes.

But it seems Pulis feels confident that he could help Bony rediscover his prolific form from his days at Swansea and will make a move to sign him.

There could be competition from West Ham, Everton, Lyon and Galatasaray for his signature.
