Wilfried Bony: Vitesse Arnhem striker linked with Liverpool and Chelsea

The Ivory Coast international, who is under contract until the summer of 2015, bagged his 15th goal of a productive season in Sunday's 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven.

His exploits in the Eredivisie this term have alerted a number of clubs throughout Europe, with the 23-year-old's representative Dalibor Lacina claiming that Anfield and Stamford Bridge are possible future destinations for his client.

Liverpool have been hugely reliant on Luis Suarez this season after Fabio Borini's injury and Andy Carroll's departure on loan, while Chelsea have only Daniel Sturridge as back-up to Fernando Torres.

"Liverpool are one of the clubs who have been considering him," Lacina told isport.blesk.cz. "We have been in touch with them.

"Liverpool need a striker to increase their scoring productivity but, on the other hand, it does not mean we are in talks with them. They are just one of the suitors.

"It is clear that Bony has attracted interest thanks to his good performances and scoring efficiency and one of the clubs interested as well are Chelsea.

"It is in the hands of Vitesse whether they agree with Bony's departure or not. They are at the top of the Dutch league and particularly after the win at PSV there is euphoria in the city.

"Vitesse have certain ambitions and it would be difficult for them to see Bony go. If I had to give my opinion on whether he leaves in January, I see it as 50-50."

And Vitesse team-mate Tomas Kalas insists Bony would be able to make an immediate transition to the Premier League.

"He has been showing quality to be able to play for a big club, even in England where the league is very physical," he said. "He would not have to adapt at all. I think he's good enough for a big club and that he will want to leave."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
