Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony has played down rumours that he will move to Russia or England in the summer, talkSPORT report.

West Ham are set to make Bony their number one transfer target for the close season as Sam Allardyce is desperate to add a goalscorer to his improving Hammers squad.

The East Enders are attempting to sign loanee Andy Carroll on a permanent deal but Newcastle are now the favourites to sign their former player so Allardyce has turned his attention to Bony.

The Hammers are set to start next season with just one first team forward in Modibo Maiga as Carroll, Marouane Chamakh and Wellington Paulista are all set to leave when their loans run out and Carlton Cole is out of contract in May.

Bony has also been linked with a move to Russia during the summer and the big money could be a more attractive off for the Ivorian who has 16 goals in 18 games for Vitesse this season.

“I do not know anything about these rumours. I’m focused on my career with Vitesse, then we will see,” Bony told De Telegraaf.

“Is my future in Russia? I do not know.”
