Newcastle fans are really scratching their heads over the latest transfer rumour, as reports suggest their striker chase could turn towards Swansea City’s Andre Ayew.
According to reports, Besiktas are close to securing a move for Ayew, but Newcastle are making a shock late bid to sign him.
The report claims the Swans are resigned to losing the versatile Ghanaian, who has 14 goals in 74 caps for his country.
Besiktas are the front-runners to land him, but “a number of clubs from home and abroad” are interested, and the Magpies have apparently now thrown their hat in the ring.
Newcastle have already been linked with a move for Jordan Ayew, Andre’s younger brother, and it doesn’t seem like fans are too fond of this one either.
The 28 year-old was a huge hit during his first season with Swansea, but his move to West Ham turned out to be a massive mistake.
Valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, he could actually be a shrewd addition for Rafael Benitez, but fans clearly don’t think so, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
