Wilfried Bony wanted by Everton to replace Romelu Lukaku

According to recent reports from The Daily Mirror, Everton manager Roberto Martinez has placed Swansea striker Wilfred Bony at the top of his summer transfer wish list as a replacement for Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku, who returned to his parent club after a season-long loan at Goodison Park. 

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a stand-out season for Swansea after completing his club-record £12m move from Dutch club Vitesse Arnham last season, striking 16-times in the Premier League to secure the Swans top-flight survival for another year.

The Ivory Coast international is believed to be wanted by Martinez, who is aiming to find a new striker to lead the line for the Toffees who secured Europa League football next season with a fifth-placed Premier League finish. 

Bony has expressed his happiness following his season at the Liberty Stadium, however, he if anything encouraged a move away at some point by admitting earlier this month that he had dreams of being with a bigger club.

While Everton appeared keen on potentially securing a longer-term deal for Lukaku, such a possibility is looking increasingly remote with transfer speculation surrounding the powerful Belgian growing daily.
