West Ham United will consider a move for Wifried Bony if they fail in their pursuit of Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi, according to the Telegraph.
Batshuyi tops the Hammers’ list of summer targets but face stiff competition in the race to secure his services not least from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The prospect of again linking up with former teammate Dimitri Payet could help Slaven Bilic in his pursuit of the Belgium international but he has an eye on Bony as a back up.
The Ivory Coast fromt man moved to Manchester City from Swansea City but has failed to reproduce the form that earned him that big money transfer.
He has so far racked up thirty-eight appearances for the Citizens in all competitions, scoring ten goals though only eleven of those outings have come from the start in the league this season with Sergio Aguero ahead of him in the pecking order.
