Wilfried Bony: The Vitesse Arnhem striker has attracted interest from Russian cl

A number of clubs, including CSKA Moscow, Anzhi Makhachkala and Zenit St Petersburg, have all reportedly been eyeing a move for the Vitesse Arnhem star.

The Ivory Coast international currently tops the Eredivisie scoring charts with an impressive 18 goals in 19 matches and he has also been linked with Premier League clubs Newcastle, Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham.

One of Bony's two representatives Francis Kacou admitted that there was some interest from three Russian clubs in the attacker, but he also made it clear that there were 'no serious talks' about signing him.

Kacou expects the 24-year-old to finish the season at Vitesse, where he has excelled.

He told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad: "If a Russian club comes in with a very good offer for him then of course the offer will be considered. But there is only three more months of the season remaining.

"I am hoping Bony will score a lot of goals in the remaining few months of the season and then he can choose from whatever club he wants in the summer."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
