Swansea City are lining up a sensational return for West Ham United winger, Andre Ayew. Recent reports suggest that the Swans are willing to bring the Ghanaian back to the Liberty Stadium in a cut-price deal. Renowned journalist, Alan Nixon has reported that the Hammers’ forward could be all set to be reunited with his former colleagues at Swansea.
The 27-year-old moved to London back in the summer of 2016 in a £20m deal while the Welsh club signed his brother, Jordan Ayew earlier that year. It is understood that Swansea City manager Paul Clement will be given some cash to splash in January and he plans to bring back Andre Ayew to the Welsh club for around half the price he originally departed for.
It was reported earlier this month that West Ham United are ready to let their Ghanaian winger leave in the January transfer window. Recent sources are claiming that the 27-year-old is not part of David Moyes’ plans and the newly appointed Hammers’ boss is willing to let him go in order to boost his January transfer kitty. Apparently, West Ham are looking for a fee around £12m which will be enough to convince them to part ways with Ayew.
Just a few weeks ago, the Ghanaian international created a buzz in London when his two goals helped the Hammers achieve a surprising come from behind win against Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup. However, his services are no longer required by West Ham boss, David Moyes as he looks to bring in January reinforcements in a bid to avoid the drop this season.
Ayew has made 16 appearances for West Ham United this season and has scored 5 goals while providing 2 assists. Although, his time with the Hammers has been plagued with injuries. Just 35 minutes into his West Ham debut, the player fell victim to a thigh injury which ultimately kept him out for eight whole weeks. If he can overcome his recent injury struggles, then the 27-year-old can be a real asset to any club. His record at both Swansea and West Ham is quite impressive for a winger.
Ayew will be welcomed back with open arms if he does make the move to Wales. The Ghanaian scored 12 goals in 34 appearances for the Swans in the 2015-16 campaign, which included memorable strikes against Manchester United and Chelsea during the season.
It remains to be seen whether Paul Clement submits a concrete offer for Ayew next month or waits until the summer.
