Stan Collymore: Wilfried Bony would be ideal for Tottenham Hotspur

In the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer news, Collymore claims Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony is the perfect signing for a side pushing for top four.

There is one player available on the summer market who would be perfect for an inter-Premier League move to Tottenham Hotspur - and that player is Wilfried Bony, a 25-year-old currently at Swansea City.

That is the opinion of Bleacher Report columnist Stan Collymore, who believes Spurs are still light of central striking options and regards Bony - who scored 16 goals from 34 appearances last season - as the ideal solution.

"Bony proved he could score a lot of league goals for a struggling Swansea last year," he said of the player who was also coveted by Everton.

"Everton have shelled their big money on Romelu Lukaku, breaking their bank [on the Chelsea forward for £28 million]. And Tottenham Hotspur are crying out for a central striker."

Bony participated in the World Cup with Cote d'Ivoire and buried one shot into goal from every four attempted - a remarkable chance conversion rate. His statistics in the Premier League last season were also commendable, as he attempted a shot on goal 3.2 times in each of his appearances on average, with a shot accuracy of 37%.

He even attracted plaudits from legendary Arsenal striker Thierry Henry. And, highlighting the player's positive traits, Collymore appears to be in the same camp as the ex Gunner - Bony is an attractive commodity who is visible in this shop window.

"Bony would be a perfect move [for Spurs]," he said. "He plays off the shoulder of the last man and holds the ball up well.

"Tottenham Hotspur have a plethora of attacking midfielders who need to come good and if they provide the ammo he received at Swansea then he can be the difference between fifth and fourth this season."
