Football Ghana are reporting that Newcastle are interested in signing 26-year-old Jordan Ayew from Swansea City.
Fulham were said to be in the lead for his signature, but now Newcastle are being aggressive in trying to sign the 46 times capped Ghana International.
His older brother Andre only signed on at Swansea from the Hammers last January.

So at the moment, both brothers are on Swansea’s books, and the Swans are now a Championship club, and both Ghanaian Internationals will want to leave south Wales this summer.
Fulham have offered £8M for Ayew, and that bid has been rejected for the Ghanaian forward who can play on either wing and as a striker.
We have never rated Jordan Ayew who scored 12 goals in 58 games for Swansea over two seasons, and before that at Aston Villa, he scored 10 goals in 58 games over a couple of seasons
Ayew is no better than Dwight Gayle who already knows the system at Newcastle.
It seems Rafa is again compelled to bring in cheaper options this summer much like he had to do last summer.
