Swansea striker Wilfried Bony has called upon his attacking partner Michu to stay at Swansea City despite a link to Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side. The Spanish forward scored 18 goals for the Swans during his first season with the club and Bony believes the two can work together to become a superb pair.

“I have heard the talk about Arsenal. But I hope he stays because he is very important to us,” said Bony to Sky Sports.

“He did very well last season, and this time it can be tougher because other teams know about him. But I think he can do even better because he is such a good player, with such good technique and positioning. We have been working together and we know a little bit more every day and can be better and better with each other.”

The Ivorian international joined Swansea this summer after moving on from Dutch club Vitesse in a £12 million switch and has praised the 27-year-old Michu for helping him settle in at the club.

“We talk a lot off the pitch too. He has been my friend to help me feel at home at the club,” Bony continued to Sky Sports.

“It is not easy to come and adapt in just three or four games, but we will go on working at improving.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal have constantly looked to improve their attacking options this summer as Wenger has reportedly been linked to a number of forwards to improve his squad.

The 27-year-old Michu joined Swansea from Spanish outfit Rayo with the two clubs agreeing to a £2 million fee. The attacker netted 15 times in his one season with the Spanish club but stepped up his performance even further with 18 finishes in the Premier League last year. Michu is a product of Spanish club Real Oviedo as the striker graduated from the club’s youth system, becoming a big part of the club’s first team during the 2003/2004 and 2004/2005 seasons.
