Liverpool and Newcastle target Andre Ayew, who was also believed to be pursued by Arsenal briefly during the summer transfer window, has reiterated his wish to move to the Premier League.
In an interview with La Provence, Ayew spoke of his admiration for the Premier League, sharing: “It is a beautiful championship. There are beautiful clubs: Chelsea, Liverpool, both Manchester clubs, Newcastle, Everton, Tottenham… They all play well in beautiful stadiums and can beat anyone at any time. There are seven teams that can fight to be in the top five and it changes. It’s good. I’d like to move one day, but I’m in no hurry. I’m 23 and I’m still at OM, a great club.”
Ayew’s words would put his suitors on high alert, especially the likes of Newcastle and Liverpool who had been reported vying for his signature this summer. Also believed to be following him are sides like Tottenham, Everton, Anzhi and Inter Milan.
The Ghanaian made 45 appearances for his club last season, scoring 12 goals and providing 5 assists. He was also named the BBC’s African Footballer of the Year in 2011 for his exceptional performances for club and country. Ayew also captained his country’s Under-20 team that won both the 2009 African Youth Championship and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup.
