Tottenham intend to compete with Liverpool for Swansea City striker Wlfried Bony.

The London Evening Standard says Tottenham intend to rival Liverpool in the race to sign Bony and are ready to offer £18million for the Swansea forward.

Bony has an open mind about which club he would like to join, although Liverpool have the advantage in that they can offer Champions League football next season, while Spurs qualified only for the Europa League.
