Liverpool strategy director plots €5.5m Ghanaian international swoop

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a move for Marseille winger André Ayew.

The Ghanaian international winger impressed for his country during the World Cup in South Africa, and has since shown good form on his return to Ligue 1, with a number of clubs across Europe taking an interest in signing the player.

Liverpool director of football strategy, Damien Comolli, made a personal trip to France on Friday night to watch Rennes take on Marseille, with three players thought to be on the radar of the former Spurs supremo.

Sylvain Marveaux and Taye Taiwo have been heavily linked with the Reds in recent weeks, but Ayew is a new name in the Liverpool frame amidst doubts over the long-term fitness record of Marveaux.

The 24-year-old has missed a large part of this season through injury, and despite being a potential free transfer would still be seen as a possible risk for the Merseysiders.

Ayew, on the other hand, has only recently broken into the first team at the Stade Vélodrome after loan stints with Lorient and Arles-Avignon in the past two seasons.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was also thought to be in the market for the player, with Arsene Wenger reportedly offering £5 million for the player's services.

Liverpool lead the Barclays Premier League charge for the player's services now though, with Ayew one of a host of wingers linked with a move to Anfield.

Ashley Young, Charles N'Zogbia and Eden Hazard are also thought to be on the Liverpool shortlist as Kenny Dalglish targets a number of changes in the summer, and the Scot appears set to spend come the end of the season.
