Premier League outfits Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool all are set to suffer a big blow as their target Wilfried Bony is reportedly staying at Swansea City.
Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has been strongly targeted by all these top Premier League clubs but failed to conclude any deal.
Arsenal were strongly linked with the Ivorian striker before the signature of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona. While Spurs and Liverpool are currently keeping tabs on him.
The 25-year-old was signed last summer for £12million from Dutch club Vitesse, since then he has scored 25 goals in 48 appearances.
Swansea City manager Garry Monk has told that Bony can be a great striker if he continues with the Swans next season.
Boss said: "I've said all along how important Wilfried is to us and what a good player he is. For me I can help him become an even better player this season."
Despite of such big names linked with Bony, Monk is confident that his star will not leave the club this summer.
While on the other hand, Arsenal and Liverpool target Karim Benzema has signed a new five-year deal at Real Madrid.
Benzema was also strongly monitored by Arsenal few months ago and recently he was on Liverpool's radar.
