SWANSEA City face competition from a host of clubs across Europe for the signature of Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony.

The Swans are believed to have made a bid for the prolific Ivorian, who scored 31 goals in the Dutch top flight last season.

Swansea are certainly interested in the 24-year-old but, valued at around £10 million, Bony might prove too expensive for Michael Laudrup’s side.

Newcastle, Everton and free-spending Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala are also reportedly tracking the 20-cap Ivory Coast man.

    Don't pay what is needed, what if that price goes up beyond 12 million and £50,000 a week?? Offer what we can safely afford. We'll get (hopefully) the right players who will come here for the right reasons. To all those people saying pay what is needed all I have to say is......PORTSMOUTH!!

    Stop all the talk about £ 10m players. We end up with Championship players and the like.

    Do these reporters just pick a name at random and then add a value. If all these reports of Swansea's intentions are true we would have already spent over one hundred million pound before wages and agents fees even get added to it...

    Seriously.... Pay what is needed to get him, before he is snatched up by any of the other PL clubs. That is if the Gomis deal falls through
