Newcastle have reportedly joined the long line of clubs expressing an interest in Swansea striker Wilfried Bony.
Swansea have labeled the striker with a £19 million price tag after Arsenal, Newcastle United and West Ham United displayed curiosity in the 25-year-old, reports The Mirror.
Whoever bags the Ivory Coast forward will be securing a sound investment after he scored a total of 25 goals during his debut season in the Premiere League.
After his success at the club it no surprise that Bony wants to move to a bigger club and the likely one of the group seems to be Arsenal.
Noticing the desire for this front man Swansea were sure to put a worthy price on him, marking a significant improvement from the £12 million they bid for him last summer.
There is no doubting that if Newcastle are able to sign the goal scorer this summer they will be looking to have a more impressive season next, a far cry away from their disappointing display this year.
The prospect of a move will bode well with Bony who has recently been named in Ivory Coast’s 23-man World Cup squad in Brazil.
