Arsenal will face competition for the signature of Wilfried Bony after Borussia Dortmund joined the race to sign the Swansea City striker this summer.

According to the Daily Express, the Ivory Coast international has emerged as a surprise target for Jurgen Klopp, who is on the lookout for a replacement for Bayern Munich bound Robert Lewandowski.

Bony has enjoyed a scintillating debut season in the Premier League, netting 24 goals in all competitions for the Swans in 2013/14.

Garry Monk will be determined to keep the 25-year-old at the Liberty Stadium, but will be well aware that increased interest in the talisman could prompt a move away from South Wales in the forthcoming transfer window.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been keeping tabs on Bony's development as he too looks to strengthen his forward line in the summer, with increasing pressure to replace Olivier Giroud.

However, Arsenal are not the only English suitor of the Swansea star, with Everton also mooted as admirers of Bony.

Roberto Martinez has utilised the loan market to bring Romelu Lukaku to Goodison Park for the duration of the current season, but with the Belgian set to return to Chelsea could turn attention to the African front-man.

Swansea paid a club-record £12million to sign Bony from Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem last year, and will undoubtedly demand significantly more than that if they are to sell the striker this summer.
