The interest in Manchester City forward Wilfried Bony continues to grow, with his former club Swansea among those considering offers for the 28-year-old.
Ambitious Ligue 1 side Marseille are another keen on Bony and it was recently said that he was a back-up plan in case they failed to land Olivier Giroud from Arsenal or AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca.
And according to le10sport, Bony is now the priority for Rudi Garcia’s side, who are convinced that they can raise his level again after two average seasons.
OM management have already approached Bony’s entourage to collect information on the conditions of a transfer, and in the coming days could make a formal offer to Manchester City.
While Foot Mercato reported yesterday that City had put a €20million (£17.75million) price-tag on Bony’s head, le10sport suggest that the asking price is €15million (£13.3million).
Bony was left behind as City jetted out to the US for pre-season and his days at Manchester City appear to be coming to an end following a disappointing spell at the club.
