Swansea City’s biggest challenge this summer will be holding onto their prized asset Andre Ayew. The Senegalese international consistently managed to make the headlines since his move to Swansea on a free transfer last summer following his contract expiry with Marseille. The 26-year-old acted like a bit of a livewire for the Swans and if not for his 12 Premier League goals, the Welsh side could have found themselves in Championship now.
According to reports from Wales Online, the former African Footballer of the Year is wanted by West Ham United as well as Liverpool, Chelsea and Sunderland. Swansea should definitely start looking for a replacement of the versatile Ghana international and we thought, we could offer Guidolin a hand in his search.
The 25-year-old Nigerian international has found himself as a peripheral member of the Chelsea side ever since his big money move from Wigan in 2012. He was shipped out on loan for three successive seasons to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham respectively and neither of them was prolific. Moses is in a desperate need for a fresh start in his career or else we could see a bright talent getting wasted due to lack of opportunities. Swansea could definitely offer the Nigerian a lifeline to revive his career and fulfil the potential he displayed from a very young age.
If you ask me to name one Aston Villa player who did not deserve to be relegated, I would say it was Jordan Ayew, Andre Ayew’s younger brother. Like his elder brother, Jordan Ayew also made his way to the Premier League last summer and his individual display was quite decent. Time and again, Ayew looked to be the only Villa player who was at least trying to help his side avoid the inevitable relegation. The 24-year-old fleet-footed striker would be a quality replacement for his elder brother at Swansea.
Yes, Barcelona might be arguably the strongest team in Europe right now but that day is not far away when the Blaugrana won’t be able to boast about the thing that used to be their pride since eternity, the famed La Masia academy. Players like Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets and of course Messi- all made their way to the first team of Barcelona from La Masia but now the difference between the academy and the first team looks quite big and Tello is looking to be the next player to be a casualty of Barcelona moving for bigger names. The 24-year-old would be a quality replacement for Andre Ayew at Swansea.
