West Ham manager Slaven Bilic says signing Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony ‘is an option’ as they look to strengthen their attack.
West Ham have made no secret of wanting to bring in a forward, with the club’s record signing André Ayew ruled out for up to four months after injuring his thigh on his debut at Chelsea
Bony has struggled for playing time since his £25m move to Manchester City in 2015 and was recently omitted from Pep Guardiola’s Champions League squad for the qualifier against Steaua Bucharest.
Bilic said: “Bony is a good player. He is an option because he plays in the position where, even before the injuries, we tried to sign a player – he is a centre-forward. I don’t negotiate. I’m just the manager. I just say to the chairmen and [chief scout] Tony Henry, we talk and then they do it.
