Wilfried Bony: Continues to be linked with a summer move to the Premier League

With speculation having linked the Ivorian forward with a Premier League switch for some time, he has admitted in the past to being open to offers.

That remains the case, with the 24-year-old eager to test himself at the highest possible level after proving he can be a regular source of goals in Holland.

Bony told Voetbal International: "If I go to England that would be perfect because of the league, the atmosphere - basically everything.

"However, the leagues in Germany and France are also interesting destinations."

West Ham United are said to be leading the chase for Bony's signature, but he claims no formal approach has been made.

He added: "I know about this link about from hearing about it. There is nothing serious at the moment, but it could be an option."

For now, Bony is focused on Vitesse's efforts to land the Eredivisie crown, with only three points separating them from table-topping Ajax.

He said: "The title? I don't know, but I know we can beat the three other top teams."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
