Swansea City have joined the race to sign Vitesse Arnhem star Wilfried Bony.

The Swans are looking to compete with Newcastle United for the signature of the 24-year old Ivory Coast international who has been a supreme performer in the Dutch league since his arrival from Sparta Prague in January 2011.

Bony, who is valued at £15million, netted 31 Eredivisie goals last season to lead the league for a total of 58 goals since landing in Arnhem.
