It could be that Swansea City are the second (or maybe third) Premier League club to make a bid for Marseilles winger Andre Ayew, who already has had offers from the likes of Newcastle United, Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Inter-Milan, and may not make a decision on which club to join for a month or so.
Andre Ayew – now Swansea have made bid
le10sport in France are reporting today that Swansea are the latest club to put in an offer for the 25 year-old winger/striker, who has made it clear he would preferably like to play in the Premier League next season.
A couple of years ago we wouldn’t have thought that Swansea would be any real competition to Newcastle, but things have changed and Swansea are now a forward-looking club who have improved a lot in the last two years.
For example they were willing to pay out £13M for Wilfried Bony from Vitesse almost two years ago, when Newcastle balked at the price.
Of course 18 months later Swansea sold Wilfried to Manchester City for more than double that price, and Bony was a huge hit in the Premier League for the south Wales club.
So it could be that Swansea could beat Newcastle to Andre, unless he decides to join a club with a (much) bigger name like Inter-Milan or Borussia Dortmund – who have also made bids for the player.
There have also been reports in the past that Tottenham Hotspur have also put in an offer for the Ghanaian International winger, and German club Wolfsburg have also made their offer to the goal-scoring winger.
Andre is a free agent in the summer after five good years with Marseilles, and he is great demand, and he already has offers from more than four clubs – including the Magpies.
This summer will be a test as to whether Newcastle can sign any of our top targets, given the club has been in some decline over the last three years.
That’s been especially true in the second half of the season, when we have limped across the finish line in the Premier League.
Newcastle somehow need to rise up from the ashes (like that Phoenix) very quickly.
Maybe signing Andre Ayew can help us do that?
