Wilfried Bony’s agent has opened the door to a move to Liverpool this summer.
The big powerhouse, a summer bargain for Swansea last summer, has been linked with a move away for the last few weeks after an impressive campaign saw him net 25-goals in all competitions.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been tipped to make a move, as he looks to add more fire-power to his squad and will be encouraged by agent Dalibor Lacina’s words, after he played down Newcastle United’s interest.
Lacina told The Shields Gazzette: “I know Wilfried. I brought him over from Africa and I know what he can do. I used to be a player and coach myself.
“I told them that he would score goals wherever he played but it was only Huw Jenkins [the Swansea chairman] who took the risk. Now he is worth £20m.
“Newcastle is a traditional, fantastic club but they are always the same with transfers. I was in contact with them a couple of years ago over Tomas Ujfalusi, who played for Atletico and Fiorentina, but it was a similar story.”
