Liverpool are closing in on Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony.

The Sunday Express says Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is closing in on £20 million Bony as he looks to continue spending the record £75m Luis Suarez transfer cash windfall.

Swansea, who have brought in Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis, know they face a fight to hold on to Bony, who they signed for £12m from Vitesse Arnhem last summer.

His contract has a £20m release clause, which Rodgers is prepared to pay his former club.

The Kop boss is also interested in the Swans' £10m-rated left-back Ben Davies.
