Swansea City are looking to part ways with Wilfried Bony and Turkish giants Besiktas are said to be interested in the Ivory Coast striker. Earlier it was being reported that the Swans will let him go on a permanent basis but the latest reports suggest that Swansea City are looking to send him on a season-long loan deal.
The 29-year-old has struggled with form and fitness in the last season and he couldn’t save the Swans from going down to the second division. He managed just 15 appearances in the Premier League and scored two goals. This was Bony’s second stint with the Welsh outfit as he was previously part of them from 2013-2015.
He was a crucial player for them in those days and he was one of the major reasons why the Swans were doing well in the English top flight. Later he was signed by Manchester City after he kept on impressing for the Swans, however, he never was able to replicate his performances and the Citizens soon parted ways with him.
He missed close to 24 games last season due to various injuries and that has been his downfall over the past few years as he has failed to keep himself fit for the matches. His form has also been dismal, however, he still has a moment of genius in him and that could be the reason why the Swans are not willing to part ways with him on a permanent basis.
Reports suggest that the Swans want an initial loan fee of €3m and the Turkish giants are reluctant to pay such an amount. Swansea has the likes of Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham who can start up front and that could be one of the reasons why they don’t want Bony on their payroll.
The Ivory Coast striker has got a good amount of experience in the Premier League but it seems like he has lost his charisma on the pitch in the past few years. Graham Potter is looking to rebuild this side after relegation and he probably thinks Bony will be surplus to his requirements and it won’t make sense for him to keep a 29-year-old striker on a payroll when he has two young and budding strikers. Maybe when the Swans qualify back to the Premier League, they can have Bony as an experienced option in the squad.
