Swansea City manager Garry Monk claims it will take an 'astronomical' amount for potential suitors to sign Wilfried Bony in the ongoing transfer window.

The Ivory Coast striker, valued at £20m, has been linked with a move to Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur but nothing appears to have materialised.

Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy was thought to be nearing a move to Anfield but it collapsed as the French international was believed to have failed his medical.

The Reds boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed he won't panic and splash the cash to sign another goal-scorer.

But his counterpart at the Liberty Stadium has dismissed rumours pertaining to Bony's departure this summer, insisting the Welsh club's star striker is not for sale.

"There will be interest in a number of our players - that's the way it is - but at the end of the day, Wilf is a Swansea City player," Sky Sports quoted Monk as saying.

"Everything that has been said about him this summer has been said in the papers. At the moment nobody has come in for Wilf and he is our player.

"It has to be made loud and clear what is happening at some point - but at the end of the day, he is not for sale unless someone comes in with an astronomical offer, which is the same with every club around the world. Unless anyone wants to pay an astronomical fee, he will be going nowhere."

Bony made an instant impact for the Swans since joining them for a club record fee of £12m last summer. The 25-year-old netted 16 times last season to finish among the top six in the Premier League goal-scoring charts.

Monk insists the former Vitesse Arnhem star is happy to be a part of his roster for the upcoming campaign.

"I've spoken to Wilf. He is a very good guy, a top professional, and fortunately, I get on well with him. But having spoken to him, he knows he is Swansea City player and he knows nothing has happened so far," the 35-year-old former defender explained.

"All he wants is to concentrate on what he is doing for Swansea City. That's why he is with the squad [in Devon]. If he was thinking about going, he wouldn't be here."
