Marseille winger Andre Ayew has revealed that he would love to play for a club like Chelsea, Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future.
The 23-year-old, who arrived at Marseille in 2005 before making his senior debut two years later, admits that he would relish the opportunity to further his career at a bigger club away from France.
“I have the ambition to go higher, but I'm only 23," Ayew told reporters in France. "I'm not desperate to leave. I had a dream: to be one of Marseille's most important players. If an opportunity arrises, maybe I will leave.
“I've learnt to be patient. I'm aware that there are better clubs than l'Olympique de Marseille. About a dozen or so.
"It's true that we all want to be at Chelsea, Real Madrid or Barcelona, but again, how many players in France would dream to be where I am right now? A lot more than the number of people I will eventually come to envy.
"Actually, why wouldn't I spend my entire career at this club if the owner's plan works out?”
Ayew, who is the son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele and the brother of Marseille teammate Jordan Ayew, has scored 42 goals in 139 appearances for L'OM since joining the club six years ago.
His past performances have caught the eye of several Premier League clubs, including both Liverpool and Newcastle United, who were linked with the Ghana international last month.
However, as yet there as been no firm interest in the Marseille wide-man from either Chelsea, Real Madrid or Barcelona.
