Arsenal transfers: Wilfried Bony confirms that there was interest in him during the summer transfer window
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.
I waited and nothing happened so now I am just focused on the team
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.
