Wilfried Bony’s agent says his client is attracting plenty of interest from both Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Vitesse Arnhem star has scored 15 goals in 14 Eredivisie appearances this season, prompting clubs around Europe to keep tabs on his progress.

According to Bony’s representative, Dalibor Lacina, the Ivory Coast striker is now a January target for the Blues and Reds.

"Liverpool are one of the clubs who have been considering him," Lacina told isport.blesk.cz. "We have been in touch with them.

"Liverpool need a striker to increase their scoring productivity but, on the other hand, it does not mean we are in talks with them. They are just one of the suitors.

"It is clear that Bony has attracted interest thanks to his good performances and scoring efficiency and one of the clubs interested as well are Chelsea.

"It is in the hands of Vitesse whether they agree with Bony's departure or not. They are at the top of the Dutch league and particularly after the win at PSV there is euphoria in the city.

"Vitesse have certain ambitions and it would be difficult for them to see Bony go. If I had to give my opinion on whether he leaves in January, I see it as 50-50."
