Wilfried Bony will cost Arsenal & Chelsea £19m

Published 1 Comments

Swansea City won't sell striker Wilfried Bony for anything less than £19 million this summer, according to The Mirror.

The Ivory Coast striker - who struck 25 goals in all competitions for the Swans last term - has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs in recent time.

Reports have suggested that the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle and West Ham are all interested in the player's services, with suggestions being made that Jose Mourinho wants to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer. 

However, it now appears that the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea will have to pay his full release clause in order to land him. 

Both clubs are expected to invest in the striker department ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, with Arsenal only having Yaya Sanogo as back up to French international Olivier Giroud. 

Chelsea, meanwhile, have been tipped to sign Atletico Madrid hitman Diego Costa for some time now, however it appears that Mourinho could opt for Bony to partner him. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea will battle for the player's signature in the near future.
