Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony is reportedly one of the names on West Ham United's shortlist for a new forward this summer.

West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony this season.

The Hammers have been linked to a number of strikers in recent weeks, with the likes of Michy Batshuayi, Christian Benteke, Alexandre Lacazette and Edin Dzeko among the names reportedly on their shortlist.

Co-chairman David Sullivan has even hinted at a move for Paris Saint-Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic after stating that they are looking at 10 different strikers across Europe.

The Telegraph reports that Bony is one of the names on that list, with the Ivorian available for around £20m this summer.

Incoming City boss Pep Guardiola is expected to bring in a number of new players when he arrives at the club, with the likes of Robert Lewandowski among those linked to the Etihad Stadium.

That should pave the way for Bony to leave, although the report also claims that his £100,000-a-week wages, plus £20,000 game bonus, could be a sticking point.
