The Sunday People report this weekend that Everton want Swansea’s Wilfried Bony to replace Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.

Bony is a man in form after bagging a brace on Saturday to shoot down Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Bill Mills reports:

Roberto Martinez is planning to make the first move for Swansea striker Wilfried Bony. 

Martinez sees Bony, 25, as the ideal successor to Romelu Lukaku, who has not ruled out staying at Goodison Park, but looks more likely to leave at the end of his year-long loan spell.

Swansea splashed out £12 million on Bony and will be looking to double their money if they decide to sell a player who still has three years to run on his contract. 

In all competitions for club and country this season,  Bony has started 40 matches, scoring 25 goals and bagging five assists.
