Arsenal to bid 25m for 25 goals striker

Wilfred Bony like Michu shone the Premier League with his amazing goal scoring and match winning performances. It is astonishing how Swansea have always managed to pull out such a player. Michu started struggling with injury issues but even he did extract an interest from Arsenal and now so has Bony.

Swansea have told Arsenal to table a 25m bid for the inform striker who has been an integral part to Swansea’s success. Bony joined the Welsh side last summer for a club record £12m, and the 25-year-old has more than paid back the fee already, following a superb debut season. In all competitions, he scored 25 goals, more than Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and even Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge. As a result, Gary Monk’s Swansea outfit have put a large, but probably justified £25m price-tag on his head, which could ward off the interest of both Arsenal and Roma.

The Gunners must go out with strong financial backing them because they lack the services of a quality striker with only Giroud at their helm. Bendtner is set to leave Arsenal while Yaya Sanogo is too raw a talent to be dependent on.
