WILFRIED Bony of Swansea City is being targeted by Everton to replace Romelu Lukaku, it has been reported tonight.

Metro is suggesting Everton think of Bony as the ideal man to fill their star player’s shoes when the Belgian international returns to Chelsea following his loan spell at Goodison Park.

He netted 16 goals in 33 appearances for Everton, who are managed by former Swansea City player and boss Roberto Martinez.

Bony, 25, was a record £12m signing for Swansea, from Vitesse Arnhem last year.

Five of his 25 goals have come in the Europa League, a record Everton will be considering closely, having qualified for the same competition this season.

But Bony has stated clearly he sees his future at the Liberty Stadium.

    What I find concerning is the slight but significant change in what GM is saying re Bony, following the S'Land game it was we're not a selling club and we're keeping him, a few days later it had changed to I think we can hold on to him but money talks and mentioning astronomical sums, worrying.

    Beard 1878 I have a feeling we could see further improvement next season. But we need to hang onto our key players.

    I think I might be developing some sort of psychic ability, I pretty much know what KP'S posts will be before he posts them

    Well Monk has said no one`s place is safe, so I suppose Bony has to have options... Monks one liners are starting to crack me up, worth following him just for that...

    You only have to look at Michu and benteke this year to see buying players on a one season wonder can backfire.
