Swansea striker targeting move to ‘bigger club’

Swansea striker Wilfied Bony has revealed that he is ready to leave the Liberty Stadium after just one season to join a club in the Champions League.

The Ivorian ace only switched to the Swans from Vitesse Arnhem last year and has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League, netting 15 goals in 32 games.

He also starred in their run to the Europa League knockout stage, but is rumoured to have grown frustrated at seeing his side battle against relegation for much of the season.

Although the Bony maintains that he is happy at Swansea, the 25-year-old says that he would jump at the chance to sign for a “bigger club”:

“I want to be in a bigger club, like all young players dream,” he told Sky Sports.

“So, for me, it is very important to keep doing well what I am doing now and just try to get the chance, and if the chance comes to me then it is up to the club to decide.

“All I can say is that I’m very happy here to be playing in Europe again. If you win something you always want to do more, always pushing yourself.

“I want to do Champions League now. I want to play more European games, so I feel like that because you feel it is good to play against the big teams. It is good to check your level.”

Bony has been linked with Everton as a replacement for Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku, while there have been whispers that Arsenal could look to lure him to London if he becomes available.
