Chelsea & Liverpool front-runners for African ace as manager admits he could leave

Liverpool and Chelsea are the front-runners in the race for Andre Ayew after Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin confessed that the attacker may leave the Liberty Stadium this summer, according to reports from Ghana Soccernet.

The Ghana international has been a big hit in the south of Wales since his free transfer from Marseille 12 months ago and netted 12 goals in Premier League action last term for the Swans, making him their top scorer in the division.

However, Ayew himself has hinted on multiple occasions that he’s willing to leave the club for bigger and better things, ideally Champions League football, and Guidolin has confessed that his star man might indeed depart before the close of the window:

“Andre is a good guy and a good player, I hope he stays with us but I don’t know,” he is quoted by BBC Sport.

“It is important to keep him, but it is not my job,

“My job is to train and to get the team to play well and to get good results. I am confident he will stay.”

And Ghana Soccernet have gone into more detail on these claims, suggesting that Chelsea and Liverpool are at the font of the queue for the versatile forward.

Ayew, 26, could be a wise addition for either club given that he can function in any forward position, while he has shown his ability in the Premier League already.

As well as Chelsea and Liverpool, Manchester City have been aligned with the Swansea ace.
