Andre Ayew poised to snub Tottenham, Swansea AND West Ham

first_img Andre Ayew 1 Ghana star Andre Ayew has received offers from Tottenham, Swansea and West Ham – but still has his heart set on a move to Roma.The 25-year-old is out of contract this summer and available on a free after he rejected the chance to stay at Marseille.The forward has attracted particular interest from the Premier League, with Tottenham, Swansea and West Ham all offering him a deal.However, according to L’Equipe, Ayew is still holding out for an offer from Italian club Roma.The Serie A side secured Champions League football after finishing second in the league last season and that is believed to be a big factor for the Ghanaian.Before any move takes place though, Roma are hoping to clear up the future of Radja Nainggolan – who has been linked with a move to Manchester United.The Belgian’s departure would free up the necessary wages to seal a swoop for Ayew.last_img read more
