Striker linked with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool focused on his current club

Swansea City's Wilfried Bony is focussed on delivering from his team after links to other Premier League clubs.

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony is focussed on his future at the Swans after a summer of speculation linking him with a move away from the club.

Bony had an impressive first season in South Wales where he scored 26 goals in all competitions in his debut season, and was linked with moves to Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

He has yet to get off the mark in the current campaign, and manager Garry Monk is confident he can improve the Ivory Coast international even further after a promising first campaign.

Despite talk of him wanting to move away from the Liberty Stadium, Bony seems focused on playing for his current club, rather than seeking to move away.

He's quoted in the South Wales Evening Post, saying: "Before we were talking, but now it's over so I have to focus on the team.

"There were some chances (that he might leave), but nothing concrete. I waited and nothing happened so now I am just focused on the team.

"My head is okay. I just want to repeat or do better than last season."

Swansea fans will be delighted their star striker is focussed on his game. After a slow start to the season for himself personally, they will be happy with their return of nine points from four games - and if Bony can find his form again, he can provide even more of a threat as the side threaten to surprise the Premier League even more in the coming weeks and months.

With regards to any future move, it would seem unlikely that either Arsenal or Liverpool would renew their interest in him any time soon having signed strikers in the form of Danny Welbeck and Mario Balotelli respectively this summer. 

Tottenham didn't strengthen in the forward area and appear to be heavily reliant on Emmanuel Adebayor, even with Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane at the club, so they may come calling in the near future if they deem him an affordable option and if Mauricio Pochettino isn't satisfied with his striking options. 

But for now, Swansea should be glad that their striker seems committed despite the speculation surrounding his future.
