Tottenham transfer news: Wilfried Bony latest striker to be linked with Spurs

The Swansea forward featured for the Ivory Coast at the World Cup

Tottenham have reportedly opened talks with Swansea over the possible transfer of striker Wilfried Bony.

Spurs are also said to be speaking with the Welsh club about defender Ben Davies.

The White Hart Lane club are eager to bolster their strike force and have been linked with numerous players this summer, including Loic Remy and Romelu Lukakau.

Bony, who is returning from the World Cup following Ivory Coast's exit, only joined Swansea 12 months ago in a £12m deal. Should the Swans allow the 25-year-old to leave they could be in line to make a swift profit with the striker now valued at closer to £20m after he notched 16 goals in 34  Premier League appearances last term.


There are suggestions that Swansea would seek to bring Gylfi Sigurdsson the other way as part of any deal.
