Get French Football News is today exclusively reporting that French club Marseilles have offered their attacking midfielder/winger Andre Ayew to Newcastle United in the last week.
Andre Ayew – offered to Newcastle
Marseilles want to unload the 24 year-old this summer, and Newcastle were credited with an interest last summer in the player, who at that time said his dream move would be to Liverpool.
Marseilles President Vincent Labrune is now in London, and there’s a report in the French daily L’Equipe that he is offering the 51 times capped Ghanaian international to a number of English clubs while on his visit to London.
Andre joined Marseilles back in 2007, and since that time he has played 166 games with 49 goals and 16 assists for the French club, and he played very well for Ghana in the World Cup in Brazil over the summer and scored a couple of good goals.
He is now surplus to requirements at Marseilles, and he’s a goal scoring midfielder – which seems to be what Newcastle have been after this summer.
But with Cabella, Perez and Aarons all showing up well on the wings in pre-season, we don’t know if Newcastle will be interested in signing the player – who would be available for around £5M or even less from the French club.
What do you think?
Note: Paul Lawson is a NUFC season ticket holder living in Birmingham, and wonders if there are any other season ticket holders in the area, so they can share the car expenses to Newcastle – you can contact Paul at 07969296054.
