If a recent report from the GHANASoccernet is believed to be true, Celtic are eyeing a swoop for Andre Ayew who is now a free agent upon the expiration of his contract at the Liberty Stadium. His tenure at Swansea City ended in disappointment following the play-off final defeat against Brentford and the Bhoys, therefore, might finally secure his services, having failed to do so during Brendan Rodgers‘ tenure.
The 31-year-old attacking ace had his moments in English football since joining the Welsh outfit on a free transfer back in the summer of 2015. They were an established top-flight side back then and an outstanding campaign that saw him securing a high-profile move to West Ham United a year later. But he was only retained for one-and-a-half years as the struggling Swans brought him back in their attempt to escape relegation scare.
Although the fans had their hopes high following his dramatic return, 6 defeats and 3 draws in the final 9 fixtures made their demotion inevitable under Carlos Carvalhal. Ayew then spent the 2018-19 season out on loan with Galatasaray before rejoining the Jacks’ battle for promotion under Steve Cooper.
Why Celtic Must Grab This Opportunity Of Tying Ayew Down
Despite being majestic over the past couple of terms with ample goals and assists, successive play-off heartbreaks have left Swansea with no choice but to part ways with the Ghana skipper. They are no more capable of paying his high wages and the Hoops, aiming a transition under new management, have emerged as favourites to reignite interest.
While the Glasgow giants are set to appoint Ange Postecoglou as the Parkhead chief, Leicester City are closing in on hitman Odsonne Edouard over a potential reunion with Rodgers at King Power. Leigh Griffiths might return to Hibernian for a fresh start, whereas Albian Ajeti failed to leave an impact after a £5m transfer from West Ham. A shake-up high up the pitch must be prioritized and the signing of Ayew would be a massive coup considering his experience and expertise in the attacking third.
The ex-Marseille star is known for his flexibility across the frontline. Although Cooper might have deployed him as a ‘number 9’ on most occasions, his exquisite dribbling along with vision and passing excellence make him equally effective from the wide. His physicality, as well as work rate, helped him attune to the English game and his presence would offer the much-needed leadership traits in the post-Scott Brown era.
