If there’s one glaring flaw in the current Liverpool roster, it’s the absence of an established, proven wideman.
With that in mind, I suggest the Reds reignite their transfer interest in Ligue 1 star Andre Ayew – a target who represents an ideal equilibrium between age, quality and price.
A goal-scoring winger, the 24 year-old has racked up an impressive 46 goals and eleven assists in 150 appearances for Marseille, including two goals in the Champions League’s group stages this season.
Ayew comes with a big profile on the international scene too; he was an integral member of a Ghana side that reached a World Cup quarter-final in 2010, and a year later was anointed BBC African Footballer of the Year.
The Black Stars wideman has just 18 months left on his current contract, and with L’OM producing such poor form on both the domestic and European fronts this season, a new deal is looking increasingly unlikely.
Therefore, it’s expected Ayew will be allowed to leave in the summer before his value further depreciates, potentially for as little as £8million.
