Wilfried Bony: Linked with summer move

The Ivory Coast international is the top scorer in Dutch football and has long been linked with a move to England, with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle and West Ham all said to be keeping a close eye on him.

"For me the Premier League is the top league [in Europe], but the Bundesliga is also good - France, Italy and Spain they're all good too," said Bony.

"England I think would be perfect. I'm very interested in the Premier League and the atmosphere in England, it's a wonderful league and we will see what happens.

"It would be great for me [to move to a club in the Champions League]. It's the only competition I haven't played in yet."

The 24-year-old insists that he will only look at his future when the season has finished.

"The transfer market has not started yet. There's nothing concrete," he told BBC Sport.

"There is a lot of talk about me in the newspapers but I'm still focused on the last two games of the season with Vitesse and at the end of the season we will see.

"I've heard the rumours [about Chelsea being interested], like you've heard about that. There's nothing concrete. We'll see at the end of the season."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
