Popular bookmakers SkyBet have made West Ham new 6/4 favourites to sign Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony, cutting the Londoners in from 8/1.

The Ivorian has failed to establish himself during his time at the Etihad, and has fallen even further down the pecking order since the arrival of Pep Guardiola.

Bony's omission from City's Champions League squad could signal his availability, and with the Hammers' on the hunt for extra fire-power after Andre Ayew's long-term injury, a move to London has the potential to suit all parties involved.

SkyBet list Arsenal as second favourites for the former Swansea City man's signature at 4/1, with Everton just behind at 5/1.

Although Slaven Bilic has added Jonathan Calleri to his squad, another experienced striker could make a huge difference to the Hammers' Premier League campaign.

During Bony's time at Swansea, he scored 34 goals in 70 outings, and with regular first-team football at West Ham, the 27-year-old would surely be able to replicate that kind of form, and in turn, help fire the Hammers to success.

One thing seems certain, in order for Bony to salvage his Premier League career, he will have to leave Man City, and West Ham could be the ideal place to revive his flagging fortunes.
