Arsenal and Liverpool chasing African starlet

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Liverpool are tracking the progress of Ghanaian midfielder Andre Ayew.

The 21-year-old has sneered a terrific 12 months for club and country after playing a central role in Ghana's World Cup campaign last year and staring for Marseille in Ligue 1 this season.

His form has attraction attention from England, with the Gunners and the Reds both interested in bringing the winger to the Barclays Premier League.

But on a potential move, Ayew said: "I’m not going to talk about speculation in the newspapers and websites about my future with Marseille.”


“These speculations won’t affect me at all because I am only focused on doing one thing and that’s helping my club Marseille this season… I will continue to play my heart out for my club as we want to win trophies and not to concentrate on what the media is speculating.”

Kenny Dalglish has made signing a winger his top priority in the coming transfer window, with Andy Carroll thus far devoid of service at Anfield.

Arsene Wenger meanwhile wants a replacement for the misfiring Andrei Arshavin, and believes the diminutive Ayew would suit The Emirates Stadium side.

Both sides are expected to make significant changes to their squad for the new season, with Arsenal being knocked out of three competitions in the space of 13 days, while Liverpool will want to propel themselves back into European competition as they looked likely to miss out on the final Europa League spot.
