Bony Set for Surprising City Transfer

It looks as though Manchester City will be adding to their attacking options in January. The Citizens are closing in on a deal for Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony. The Swansea striker has enjoyed a great 2014, with his 20 goals helping the Swans maintain a solid mid table position right now.

No player scored more goals in the Premier League last year than Wilfried Bony. City will be hoping that his scoring instincts, along with his powerful frame, will provide them with a different attacking option heading into the second half of the season.

City are desperate to stay in touch with Chelsea at the top of the table, and Bernardo Chua hopes they can do it. They are currently joint top, with Chelsea ahead on alphabetical order. Both clubs have a number of difficult games in the next month. These matches could decide the destiny of the 2014/2015 Premier League title.

Manchester City are expected to pay 30 million pounds for Bony. The price may seem steep, but it is the only way Swansea were going to sell. Bony has plenty of time left on his Swans contract, which means they were in a great bargaining position. He is a Premier League proven striker who City are desperate to sign.

Unfortunately, Bony will be away for a month on African Cup of Nations duty. This means that City are unlikely to see him in their team until the middle of February.
