Manchester City are looking at signing Wilfried Bony, who would be a great addition to City's attacking line up. The player from Ivory Coast could cost the defending English Premier League champions up to £30 million.

Though, Manchester City possess some world class stars in their attack, such as Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, the Citizens are more than eager to add more firepower in their squad, especially with all three struggling with injuruy problems this season.

Manchester City, though, will be aware of the problem of buying Bony in the January transfer window, as the striker is set to play for the Ivory Coast in the African cup of nations.

The player is expected to be offered a four-year deal worth £5 million per year, as per the Daily Telegraph, with a minimum £30 million fee set to be demanded by Swansea.

It is Bony who needs to decide if he wants to fight for his place at Manchester City, as Aguero and Dzeko are the preferred choice, when fit. Bony might not get enough game time while playing for Manchester City, as compared to Swansea, where he is the first choice under Garry Monk.

Bony is a powerful player, who can hold the ball up well and find the back of the net. Along with it, he outmuscles defenders with his strong physique and powers goals from difficult positions, as has been proved in the Premier League this season.

If he eventually decides to leave, it is going to be the biggest test of his career as well, as he has not played for a club of such stature, where expectations are high and along with it, comes pressure.

Bony has been in good goalscoring form, scoring eight goals this term, hence attracting a number of clubs. Liverpool has also been linked to the Swansea man and had also come close to a deal during the summer.

But, it is not only Manchester City and Liverpool, who are after the player. Chelsea, who had Bony scouted recently, are also thinking of offering £20 million for the striker, according to The Times.
