Arsenal to offer £30m for Ivory Coast's Wilfried Bony
Arsenal are reportedly set to make a £30million bid for Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony.
Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for new additions up front after seemingly losing faith in Olivier Giroud, and Bony is the latest big name to come on to the Gunners’ radar.
Bony could add competition for Olivier Giroud, and City would likely snap up the Gunners' offer if they could earn a £5 million profit on the 27-year-old, who cost the club £25 million when he was purchased from Swansea City.
Bony never seemed to settle in at the Etihad under Manuel Pellegrini and was left behind by new manager Pep Guardiola for Sunday's 3-2 loss to Arsenal in Sweden. Following the loss, Guardiola was noncommittal about Bony's future and said he remained a City player "at the moment."
