A winger long linked with the Magpies, the 24 year old Ghanaian’s desire to leave Marseille this summer has put a number of European clubs on alert. Ayew himself has fuelled the speculation by speaking of his “preference” to play in the Premier League.
The 24 year old equalised with a peach of a header in the recent draw with Germany.
With Hatem Ben Arfa clearly out of favour, Pardew could be interested in strengthening his attacking options with the acquisition of the Ghanaian. However, a bidding war is expected for Ayew and Newcastle will do well to convince the player to make the move to Tyneside.
