Andre Ayew has become one of the hottest names on the transfer market as a bundle of Premier League clubs have eyes on the Ghanaian international.
Reports pen Liverpool, Everton, Swansea City, Hull City and West Ham as five clubs that would like to acquire the services of the 2011 African Footballer of the Year.
After his first season with Marseille in 2007, Ayew was linked with a move to Arsenal, but the deal never went through. Now seven years later, and Ayew is keen for a move to the Premier League.

Ayew rejected Marseille’s latest contract offer, which means it is purely a waiting game until the January transfer window for Premier League clubs to make their offers.
Marseille have opened up their season red-hot, winning eight of their first ten matches while accumulating a seven-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table. It seems the club hasn’t missed a beat since losing club legend Mathieu Valbuena over the summer. If Ayew leaves as well, Marseille may need to look into the transfer market themselves.

The winger performed well in the World Cup for Ghana, scoring against the United States as well as against Germany. Still only 24 years old, club’s started to take notice of the Marseille man.
While multiple clubs are keen to sign Ayew, it is likely the winger will be looking for a large contract and the possibility of European football. With Liverpool struggling to find their form of last season, will Brendan Rodgers continue his spending spree?
With an expiring contract, Ayew could move to the Premier League on a free transfer this summer, but with clubs look to win and win now, expect to see Andre Ayew in England come the new year.
