Swansea are again being linked with a move to re-sign Wilfried Bony, who appears to be heading for the Manchester City exit door.
The 27-year-old Ivory Coast international hitman joined City from the Swans in January 2015 for a fee in the region of Â£25million, but he has scored just six Premier League goals in 32 appearances having struggled to force his way into boss Manuel Pellegrini’s plans.
And with Pep Guardiola poised to replace Pellegrini in the Etihad Stadium hotseat this summer, it looks likely that Bony will slip further down the pecking order should the Spanish tactician decide to bring in more new faces to bolster the forward line.
As a result it has been suggested that Bony would like to move on to pastures new in order to be guaranteed regular first-team football elsewhere.
Swansea have been alerted by their former player’s unrest and could look to entice City into a sale with a cheeky bid of around Â£18million to take him back to the Liberty Stadium, where he scored 35 goals in 70 appearances after joining from Vitesse in 2013 for Â£12million.
