The Manchester City striker has been suggested as a potential makeweight in the deal for John Stones.
The defender has been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium all summer, but so far the two sides have failed to agree a deal for him.
Should Bony arrive at Goodison Park, it is extremely likely he would replace Kone as the Blues' back-up option.
But would he represent an improvement? We decided to compare the two players to find out.
|Team||Season||Total Scoring Att per Game||Ontarget Scoring Att per Game||Goals||Shooting Accuracy||Key Passes per Game||Goal Assist||Aerial Won per Game||Unsuccessful Touches per Game||Appearances|
|Wilfried Bony||Man City||2015-2016||2.31||0.65||4||7%||0.5||3||1.85||1||26|
And rather surprisingly it turns out that the two were level across the eight areas that we looked at.
Kone managed more goals and assists, as well as a better shooting accuracy. He also registered more key passes per game than Bony.
However, the Manchester City man registered more shots per game, more shots on target per game as well as wining more aerial duels per game.
He also managed fewer unsuccessful touches per game, with these stats suggesting Everton may be best looking elsewhere for their new striker.
