West Ham United lead the chase for the services of forgotten Stoke City man Wilfried Bony, with the Hammers ahead of Everton and West Brom in the pecking order for the Ivorian’s services.

The Sun reports a scrap for the services of the experienced Premier League striker is set to take place this summer, with Bony having been frozen-out of Stoke’s side this season.

28-year-old Bony has made just 11 appearances for the Potters this season, scoring three goals, and West Ham are keen on his services as they look to strengthen their attacking ranks.

West Ham face rival interest in the battle for Bony’s services though, as West Brom are seeking his signature whilst Everton believe him to be an able replacement for want-away star Romelu Lukaku.

As it stands though, the Hammers lead the chase in the push for Bony’s signature and he’s likely to be available this summer having failed to establish himself during his loan with Stoke City.

Valued at £15.3m by TransferMarkt, Manchester City are likely to cash-in this summer to help fund their own transfer activity and Bony will look to rekindle the form that saw him become highly-rated during his time with Swansea City.
