Wilfried Bony has confirmed that there was interest in him during the summer transfer window amid speculation linking the forward with Arsenal.

The Ivorian was touted as a target for both the Gunners and Liverpool during the summer months as both sides looked to bolster their attacking options.

However, a move away from Swansea City failed to materialise for the 25-year-old, who insists he is now focused on performing for Garry Monk’s side.

“Now it’s over,” Bony said of the transfer speculation. “Before we were talking, but now it’s over so I have to focus on the team.

“There were some chances [that I might leave]. I waited and nothing happened so now I am just focused on the team.

“My head is OK. I just want to repeat or do better than last season.”

Arsenal eventually signed Danny Welbeck from Manchester United on transfer deadline day.
