Newcastle have been interested in Marseilles winger Andre Ayew, and he could be offered to Newcastle in January.
Andre Ayew – Newcastle interested in Ghana winger/striker
His club Marseilles have said the Ghana international, who had a very good World Cup, will likely leave the club soon, and eighteen months ago he made it clear that Liverpool would be his number one choice.
There are reports in France that Ayew was set to leave the club next June, when his contract runs out, and he becomes a free agent, but clubs could move in during January and pick the player up at a cut price, so that Marseilles get something for him.
But there are some top clubs interested him including Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham as well as Newcastle have been credited with an interest in the 24 year-old winger/striker.
Andre has played 171 times for Marseilles with 51 goals and 18 assists since signing on in the summer of 2007.
The 24-year-old scored a couple of good goals for Ghana during the World Cup last summer in Brazil, and a number of clubs were said to be interested in the player last summer, with Newcastle being one of them.
And Marseilles are currently flying high in France and they are top of Ligue 1, five points ahead of Bordeaux and seven points ahead of PSG, after nine games played.
While Liverpool is his preferred club, it’s doubtful that the Reds will be interested in Ayew, and there’s even news that Newcastle were offered the player late in the summer transfer window.
Given what’s happened with Newcastle in our first seven games, we could have done with somebody with the class and talent of Andre Ayew.
It would be great if we can attract the player in January, but if we are near the bottom of the league that may prove to be very difficult.
