25-goal Liverpool target declared available for right price

Liverpool have been boosted in their chase for striker Wilfried Bony after Swansea’s chairman declared they are open to offers from Champions League clubs.

The Reds were close to signing Queens Park Rangers forward Loic Remy in an £8.5million deal but the move fell through, causing coach Brendan Rodgers to continue his search for a striker.

And with the Anfield club previously linked with Bony, Rodgers could make a move for the Ivorian in the next few days.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is a big fan of the striker, but admits if the right offer came the club would be open to negotiations.

“Wilfried Bony is a fantastic professional,” he told talkSPORT. “If a top Champions League club comes in, and puts the right offer on the table, then of course we will speak to him.

“There are no issues with Bony. He’s a great guy to have around the club.

“As much as we want players to stay with us for a number of years, we have to be open.”

Bony is also being linked with Tottenham Hotspur after scoring 25 goals in all competitions for the Swans last season.
