There’s a report in L’Equipe today that Newcastle have put in a bid for Marseille winger André Ayew, who played well for Ghana in the World Cup in Brazil over the summer.
André Ayew – Marseilles’ Ghanaian International winger
Newcastle were after the 51 times capped Ghanaian International last summer, but it seemed like he was holding out for a move to Liverpool, which never materialised.
The 24-year-old is ready to leave his French club this summer, and it’s likely some big clubs will be after him, especially since he looked so good in Brazil.
This is what the 24 year-old has said about the Premier League:
“The Premier League is a league every player dreams about.¨ “The English league is the one most followed in Ghana. It’s true that I have a real preference for England.¨
“I like everything about it; the atmosphere, the game, the fans. There is a lot of intensity. It is a beautiful championship.”
There’s no chance Liverpool will come in for him this summer, which he said la year ago would be his dream move, and L’Equipe are reporting he is now considering a move to Newcastle.
Newcastle should be able to get a decent deal for the winger, and maybe a deal could be done at around £5M, especially since Marseilles are willing to sell.
Over the last four seasons – he joined Marseilles from Ghanaian club Nania in 2005 – he has played 164 games for the French club with 49 goals and 16 assists.
