Liverpool & Arsenal in transfer tussle for World Cup winger

Published Add your comment

Marseille winger Andre Ayew is a reported target for Liverpool and Arsenal.

The 23-year-old was one of the star turns for Ghana at the 2010 World Cup and he has seen his profile rise dramatically as a result.

According to, reports in France have claimed that Liverpool and Arsenal are pursuing the versatile wideman with a summer transfer battle set to ensue.

However, despite mounting speculation that he could move to either Liverpool or Arsenal when the transfer window reopens, Ayew admits his head is not being turned by the alleged interest.

“I’m not going to talk about speculation in the newspapers and websites about my future with Marseille,” Ayew told

“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.

“When these reports started to filter out, I extended my contract with this great club Marseille and I am keen to continue here.


“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.”

Ayew has been enjoying a breakthrough season with Marseille and has reportedly caught the attention of newly promoted Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli.

The Frenchman has previously stated his intention to bring more potent wide options to Anfield in the future, and Ayew could provide the added goalscoring threat Liverpool crave.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are also thought to be in the market for attacking reinforcements, and with Ayew reportedly valued at around £5 million, he could represent a potentially shrewd investment for Arsene Wenger.
