Newcastle Make Contract Offer To Marseilles Winger

French radio station RMC is reporting that Liverpool, Everton and Newcastle have made contract offers to Ghanaian winger/striker Andre Ayew.

Andre Ayew – plenty off offers

But if that is true he will probably prefer Liverpool, since he has made no secret over the last two years that Liverpool would be a dream move for him, so if they  really have made him a decent offer, we would expect him to sign a pre-contract agreement with the Reds.

But it is clear that Andre wants to move to England and he said this last August:

“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.”

Andre’s five year deal at Marseilles runs out in the summer, so he will become a free agent then and  clubs have been allowed to talk to the 24 year-old and his agent since early January.

There are rumors that he’s asking for high wages – so if that’s true then it’s hard to believe that Newcastle could sign him to a pre-contract agreement, given the tight financial controls placed on the club by the owner.

There was news a few days ago that various clubs had made offers to him, and the news now is that the three English clubs have made offers and Andre and his agents are studying the offers.

Borussia Dortmund may also be making him am offer imminently, according to news in France.

Andre Ayew is exactly what Newcastle need – a fairly young goal-scoring winger – and in his five years at Marseilles he’s made 194 appearances with 53 goals and 22 assists, and he’s got a great left foot.

He’s played 62 times for  Ghana with 11 goals and played well in both the last World Cup and African Cup of Nations for them.

    Not high wages Ed. It’s what the lad warrants. He’s quality so play him accordingly. You wont get top players paying the crap wages we do.
    They’ll never be another on colocinis wages

    I’m pretty sure that is a picture of Lacezette rather than Ayew Ed?

    Would be a perfect signing so we obviously have no chance, the regime will not get into a bidding war. In the words of Jay-Z, it’s onto the next one.

    Surely we should be concentrating efforts in getting a manager? Can’t understand why it’s on hold until summer, you can still scout/talk to other coaches!

    Also see Guti seems to of been smuggled out the back door

    That is Lacazzette Ed!!! Hehehehe.

    Another we could be had for what 12mil? Now worth 30+. He has a ratio of 1.7 goals per game at the moment. Also Bony would’ve been ours for less than 12 too… my god you’re good at this aren’t you mikey?

    I read on the previous thread that apparently our lads are tired a d should be rotated!! Tired? Really haven’t they just had a 10 day break and now going into another 10 day break?

    Southampton, West Ham, and all the other non euro playing clubs seem to be doing fine without making excuses for under performing players. Most of these lads don’t even play twice a week!!
