West Bromwich Albion are interested in Manchester City’s Wilfried Bony, according to The Sun.

The Ivory Coast striker has made 11 appearances and netted three times in a loan spell at Stoke City after joining them in August 2016.

However, he has not played since returning from the African Cup of Nations in January and has now set clubs on high alert to his availability, with the Baggies reportedly interested in acquiring his services.

They will reportedly have to battle fellow English sides West Ham United and Everton who are also supposedly interested in the powerful front man.

The 28-year-old was once one of the hottest prospects in the Premier League after scoring 20 top-flight goals for Swansea City in 2014, an achievement which earned him the huge move to Manchester in 2015.

His switch to the Etihad Stadium did not go smoothly, though, as he only managed eight strikes in 34 appearances and he was subsequently loaned to Stoke for the season, where he has found himself frozen out of the team once again.

Bony could be a good addition to Tony Pulis’ side as the manager looks to expand his attacking options and consolidate their position in the top half of the table.

With West Brom looking like they will finish in the top eight of the table this season, a move to the Hawthorns may be an attractive proposition as the forward looks to get his career back on track after a period in the wilderness.
