Chelsea target set for summer exit

Wilfried BonySummer Chelsea target Wilfried Bony is set to leave Vitesse Arnhem, but his agent has refused to confirm his destination.

The striker has been a revelation in the Eredivisie this season, scoring 26 goals, and his agent, Dalibor Lacina, has now confirmed he is set for a summer move away.

The Ivory Coast international has emerged as a top Blues target in recent weeks but he has also been linked with West Ham, Liverpool and Fulham in the Premier League and several other top European sides.

“The most important thing is for Bony to keep his form and reach the best possible position with Arnhem,” Lacina told Sky Sports.

“But at the same time we have been negotiating his exit, which we must make happen in the summer.

“It is a sensitive matter and the Arnhem management have asked me not to make any comments.”

The agent refused to say where he thinks Bony will be heading but admitted there was considerable interest in his client and initial talks had been held with some clubs over a transfer.

“All the pieces of information that have been published are, for the most part, speculation which I do not want to comment on,” he added.

“We have been in talks with some specific clubs and as well as that there is a group of big clubs which are waiting in the wings.”

It is thought an offer of around £12million would be enough to secure the services of the 24-year-old.
