West Ham Want Ivorian Wilfried Bony On Loan
Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony could be spared his frustrations at Manchester City, with West Ham United keen on signing the player on a short-term loan.
The Elephants attacker has been sidelined at the Citizens under new coach Pep Guardiola and is in need of a move away from the Etihad Stadium to revitalise his career.
West Ham have enquired after the 27-year-old West African, with the London club hoping to bring him on loan for a short term deal.
The Hammers are in need of attacking reinforcements after new Ghanaian signing Andre Ayew was ruled out for up to four months with a thigh injury, while Andy Carroll is out of commission for up to six weeks with a knee problem.
The Mirror also reports that Bony has the option of a lucrative move to China in the January transfer window, but would be open to a short-term move which would offer him first team football.
The Ivory Coast national team would surely support such a move for one of their top strikers, with a view to their defence of the Africa Cup of Nations title in Gabon 2017.
