Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have been handed a major boost ahead of the summer transfer window as target has reportedly refused to sign a new contract at current club.
The Daily Star, reports that Andre Ayew is set to leave French outfit Marseille at the end of the season and is likely to find his way to the Premier league this summer according to the club’s President Vincent Labrune.
The Ghanaian star’s contract at the Stade Veledrome expires at the end of the season and the pacy winger has made it clear that he wants to leave the Ligue 1 giants this summer. And Labrune, while confirming his exit revealed that the 25-year-old is likely to join an English club.
“We can’t keep Ayew,” Labrune said.
“He is a very important player for OM but we can’t offer him the kind of money that English clubs can offer.”
“The French financial system is complicated and we can’t offering him an equivalent salary to what he can earn in England.”
“And equally, we can’t ask Ayew, who we love and is an icon for our team, to accept a lower salary.”
“That makes no sense so unfortunately he is going to quit the club and we hope he has a great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.”
This news has reportedly placed Premier League big shots on red alert for the sensational winger who has been in France since 2007, and bids would start flying around in the coming weeks for the West African born star.
