Swansea’s new signing Bafetimbi Gomis has looked strong in pre season and is so far proving that the Premiership side were right to take a punt on him as a free signing. But his early performances, which included a goal against Reading in a 3-1 win at the weekend could pave the way for the sale of Wilfried Bony.
Gomis and Bony together could provide the most potent partnership in the league next season but most of the press are adamant that the Swans are happy to sell the latter with Spurs and Liverpool the two clubs named as potential destinations.
In Finland at the weekend, all three of Tottenham’s strikers scored in a 6-1 victory over Celtic. As we reported yesterday, that Celtic side was a bit of a joke bit with Roberto Soldado, Harry Kane and Emmanuel Adebayor all finding the net, does it tend to suggest that Mauricio Pochettino will be sticking with the existing three?
Erik Lamela also added to his tally of pre-season strikes and a positive campaign from him would take the pressure off the front men. So do Spurs need a Wilfried Bony or are they fine just as they are?
