Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony

Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony is set for a move to the Russian Premier League according to his agent.

Sky Sports have reported that the Ivory Coast international has plenty of offers but he favours a move to Russia.

The 24 year old’s agent has revealed that his client will make a decision in the near future and that if the Russian clubs firm up their interest it will be tough to turn down.

The Ivorian tops the Eredivisie scoring charts this season with an impressive 18 goals in 19 games and will soon surely be linked to plenty of big European clubs.

West Ham want the striker to lead their line next season as their hopes of signing Andy Carroll are slim with the striker hopeful of returning to the North East to play for boyhood club Newcastle again.

Bony’s agent Francis Kacou has revealed that the move to Russia would favour the player.

“If a Russian club comes in with a very good offer for him then of course the offer will be considered. But there is only three more months of the season remaining,” Kacou told a Dutch newspaper.

“I am hoping Bony will score a lot of goals in the remaining few months of the season and then he can choose from whatever club he wants in the summer.”
