The question for Swansea City now is where do they hide him as Premier League rivals scramble to sign the Ivory Coast player.
But concealing him is looking difficult when his skills could be paraded before a global audience if he takes to the field for his national team in the World Cup this summer.
Everton were the first Premier League club linked with wanting Bony, who scored 25 times last season.
Five of those came in the Europa League, making him particularly attractive to Everton as they embark on a European campaign in 2014/15.
They also have a void to fill with the disappearance of on-loan Romelu Lukaku back to Chelsea.
Liverpool are reportdly targeting Bony and Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez.
While Arsenal, winners of the FA Cup on Saturday, with a 3-2 victory over Hull, are thought to want him to support Olivier Giroud.
Borussia Dortmund trumped all of the above though by showing the very first signs of interest in the 25-year-old, as they look for a replacement for Robert Lewandowski who is heading for Bayern Munich.
Bony signed for the Swans for £12million from Vitesse Arnhem.
But after his performances this past season, and with Bony’s stated desire to remain at Swansea City, the club may hope to hang on to their star striker for just a little longer.
