Marseille forward Andre Ayew has admitted that he is hoping to move to English Premier League in the near future.
The highly rated footballer has been linked with a number of Premiership clubs in the past, but he eventually opted to remain at Stade Velodrome.
Ayew, however, believes that England’s elite division is likely to become his next destination when he decides to leave Marseille.
“There is a lot of intensity. It is a beautiful championship,” Ayew told La Provence.
“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.”
Andre Ayew, the son of legendary footballer Abedi Pele, has spent his entire professional career at Stade Velodrome, although he did enjoy loan spells with Lorient and Arles Avignon.
The 23-year-old has long ago nailed down a regular starting berth at OM, but it looks as though he could be leaving his current employers in the near future.
Ayew has featured in 111 Ligue 1 matches for Marseille, scoring 28 goals, but he has yet to lift his first league trophy.
