Swansea City are keen to move on Wilfried Bony as they look to trim their wage bill, however the striker may not be keen on making a move.
Sun journalist Alan Nixon has revealed that the Welsh side want the 30-year-old to accept an offer that’s believed to be on the table from Qatari club Al-Sadd.
Sky Sports previously reported that they want to sign the Ivory Coast international and indicated that a deal was close.
Yet, Nixon’s update suggests that the player himself may not be open to a move. “Swansea want him gone. And the money in. And the wages saved. Bony may have other ideas about that.”
The former Manchester City man rejoined the Swans in 2017 in a £12m deal whilst they were a Premier League club, which means he will have signed a lucrative deal.
However, his second spell with the club has not gone well, with a serious injury preventing him playing much of a part as the Swans were relegated.
And, this season, Bony has featured just seven times, scoring once, with Graham Potter’s men currently 13th in the Championship.
After relegation, Swansea have tried to cut their wage bill and it’s clear that Bony will be on a big contract at the Liberty Stadium.
As he isn’t really making a massive contribution on the pitch, you can understand why they want him to go.
However, Bony has every right to stay and fight for his place if he wants and he still has something to offer if a deal doesn’t go through this month.
