Newcastle United were after Marseilles’ winger Andre Ayew last summer, and at that time Liverpool were thought to be interested in the player, and the 24 year-old Ghanaian International, who had a very good World Cup in Brazil, wanted to sign on at Liverpool.
Andre Ayew – Newcastle in for this winger?
And we reported recently that there was news Newcastle were back in for the Marseilles winger, after his French club is now willing to let the player leave this summer.
And if you believe the news this week, we are in the lead for Andre, since Liverpool have not shown any interest this summer for the winger who has been at Marseilles for four years now.
During that time he has made 164 appearances with 49 goals and 16 assists for the French club – and that’s not a bad record for a winger.
So here is another midfielder who Newcastle are interested in who can score goals, and last season we had very few of them at the club.
The first report that Newcastle were interested in him again was in L’Equipe a few days ago, and that news has since been covered by a number of English news outlets, such as the Express.
One thing that could point to this news being true, is that Andre has said he wants to play in the Premier League and this is what he had to say earlier this week:
“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.”
We’ll have to see if Newcastle make a move for the winger before September rolls around, but don’t be too surprised if Newcastle still bring in a couple of good players before the end of this summer’s transfer window.
Andre Ayew could be one of them.
