Olympique de Marseille forward Andre Ayew has revealed it would be an “honour” to play in the English Premier League amid reports linking the player with Arsenal, Everton, Newcastle United and Swansea City.
The Ghana international, 25, will become a free agent at the end of the season, and reports have suggested Swansea have already offered the 25-year-old a lucrative deal to lure him to Wales.
“I have had a lot of different offers from different countries, but I will have to discuss with Marseille,” Ayew told Sky Sports.
“I will make a decision soon, and look at the offers that are coming in and decide what is best for my future.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world today, and it would be an honour play there.
“I talk to a lot with my friends who have played there. Samuel Eto’o, Alex Song, Samir Nasri, Joey Barton have all given me great advice about the Premier League.
“I am still in contract with Marseille, so I cannot give names of clubs, but there has been contact.”
Failed January switch to QPR
Ayew held talks with Harry Redknapp over a potential move to Queens Park Rangers in January, but owner Tony Fernandes reportedly vetoed the move.
“It is true there were talks [with QPR],” added Ayew.
“But at the time it was not the right move for me and Marseille, which is important too.
“Nothing could be agreed so we moved on.”
Of all the clubs in England’s top flight, Liverpool would surely be Ayew’s No. 1 choice.
“All my life I have been a Liverpool fan,” Ayew said.
“When I was young I was watching the Liverpool games.
“Steven Gerrard is my favourite player. It will not be easy to see him leave in the summer, but we all need a new challenge.”
Ayew has bagged seven goals and two assists in 22 French Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille this season.
Feyenoord want Guidetti
Dutch Eredivisie side Feyenoord have made an official bid to Manchester City striker John Guidetti, who is currently on loan at Scottish Premier League champions Celtic.
Guidetti, 22, will become a free agent in July, and is expected to attract interest from several top European club’s when the transfer window re-opens this summer.
“We want the best squad and if that’s possible with Guidetti, it would be nice,” said Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel.
“It’s definitely an option. We’ll do all we can to make it happen.”
Guidetti is also rumoured to be attracting interest from Internazionale and Marseille.
