Deal Imminent: West Ham finally set to sign striker after shock £20m agreement

West Ham United and Swansea City have reached a £20m agreement over forward Andre Ayew, according to BBC Sport.

The Ghanian arrived at the Liberty Stadium on a free transfer from Marseille only last summer and had an immediate impact for the Swans.

He notched 12 goals and recorded a further 2 assists during his sole season in South Wales, finishing as the club’s top scorer last season.

However, with the Hammers seemingly hell bent on securing a marquee marksman, they have agreed to splash the cash on the 26-year old.

After the Jack Army sealed a deal for Fernando Llorente, they have allowed their star man to move to the Olympic Stadium, while Francesco Guidolin is understood to have enquired about Leicester City ace Leonardo Ulloa.

Ayew will follow the likes of Sofiane Feghouli, Gokhan Tore and Ashley Fletcher to East London this summer as they gear up for their first season in their new home.
