Swansea City have not received any offers for Wilfried Bony in the ongoing transfer window from Liverpool or Tottenham Hotspur, according to Sky Sports.

The Ivory Coast international has reportedly been the subject of interest from their respective managers Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino. The Reds have already signed Rickie Lambert to bolster their attack while the North London outfit are looking to spruce up their frontline with a prolific scorer.

The former Southampton boss was believed to have earmarked the 25-year-old striker as an option should his attempt to secure the services of Romelu Lukaku fail to materialise. However, Liverpool are actively looking for a quality goal-scorer to replace Luis Suarez, who has agreed to join Barcelona.

Rodgers reportedly has at least £75m to spend from the Uruguayan international's departure and was believed to be pursuing the Ivorian's services along with the Welsh Club's left-back Ben Davies.

The rumours prompted the Swans' chairman, Huw Jenkins to claim last week that no approach has been made from any potential suitor for any of their players.

Bony arrived in the Premier League last summer as a prolific striker having netted 31 goals in 30 matches for Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie for a fee thought to be £12m. Any club attempting to persuade Garry Monk's side to part ways with their top scorer will likely have to pay at least £20m, the price quoted by his agent, Dalibor Lacina.

Meanwhile, Liverpool youngster Jordon Ibe is keen on following in his teammate and compatriot Raheem Sterling's footsteps to seal a regular berth in the first team.

The 18-year-old winger made one appearance in the Premier League last season before joining Birmingham City on loan till the end of the season in February.

"He's only a year older than me so I need to follow in his footsteps, and watch all of the other attacking players. He's done well and scored a lot of goals," Ibe told Liverpool's official website.

"He's working hard all the time in training and impressing the manager. Because he's young, players are helping him, so hopefully they can do the same for me."

"For me personally, I'm trying to get into the first team and hopefully get minutes. I'm still quite young, I'm only 18, so I need to stay grounded, watch the senior players in my position, keep working hard and hopefully I can do well this season," the former Wycombe Wanderers starlet concluded.
