Arsenal are considering a move in signing Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony at the end of the season, according to the Mirror.
The 25-year-old joined the Welsh club from Vitesse Arnhem last summer. Since his move to the Liberty Stadium, Bony has been in fine form for Swansea in his debut season, scoring 25 goals in all competitions.
The report claims Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has set his sights on bringing the Ivory Coast international to the Emirates at the end of the season to bolster his strike force. The Frenchman has Bony as one of the striker targets in the summer transfer window.
The striker could think of leaving his current employers and consider making a switch to north London if there is an approach from the Gunners. Any move from Arsenal in landing the Swansea star could see them cough up at least £20m for Bony's signature.
Arsenal will finish the season in top four after Everton's hopes of making it to the next season's Champions League ended with their defeat to Manchester City. The Gunners sit in the fourth place with 73 points from 36 games, leading fifth place Everton by four points. The Toffees have played one more game when compared to the Gunners.
Bony has expressed his desire to play for a bigger club as he has set his sights on featuring in European football. A move to Arsenal could help him play Champions League football next season.
"I want to be in a bigger club, like all young players dream. So, for me, it is very important to keep doing well what I am doing now and just try to get the chance, and if the chance comes to me then it is up to the club to decide," Bony told Sky Sports.
"All I can say is that I'm very happy here to be playing in Europe again. If you win something you always want to do more, always pushing yourself."
"I want to do Champions League now. I want to play more European games, so I feel like that because you feel it is good to play against the big teams. It is good to check your level," he concluded.
