Manchester City have told Swansea that they will have to pay £13million to land Wilfried Bony after rejecting the Welsh club’s opening bid for the striker.

Sunday Mirror Sport understands that the Swans have had a £10m offer knocked back. City want to recoup as much cash as possible for a player who has scored just 10 goals for the club since arriving from the Liberty Stadium for £28m in January 2015.

And with Istanbul rivals Fenerbahce and Besiktas both vying to take the 28-year-old to Turkey, the Blues reckon they will get their asking price.

City know that Swansea will need to recruit more firepower once Gylfi Sigurdsson completes his £48m switch to Everton.
