Arsenal hero Thierry Henry believes Swansea City’s purchase of Andre Ayew was the signing of the summer.

Ayew has scored three goals and provided one assist in his first four Premier League appearances for the Swans, who landed the 25-year-old on a free transfer from Marseille back in June.

And Henry feels the deal may have been the standout piece of business conducted by any Premier League club while the summer transfer window was open.

“It is great to see Stoke get players like Xherdan Shaqiri but I think the signing of the summer could be Swansea’s Andre Ayew,” Henry wrote in his latest column for The Sun.

“They got him on a free from Marseille and he is really good. He will score goals, is not a typical winger, will get into the box and is lethal in the air, even though he is not tall.”

Henry names several other good signings

Henry also reserved special praise for Manchester City’s purchase of Raheem Sterling and the transfer of Pedro from Barcelona to Chelsea.

The Sky Sports pundit also believes Petr Cech was a “good signing” for his beloved Gunners, while he praised Crystal Palace for securing the services of Yohan Cabaye and Bakary Sako.

Henry is also expecting good things from Anthony Martial and Kevin de Bruyne - who joined Manchester United and Manchester City, respectively, last week - but hinted the two Premier League clubs may have overspent on the pair.

Ayew has certainly made a huge impact in the opening weeks of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign, but it will be interesting to see whether the Ghana international can sustain his impressive recent form over the course of the season.

If he can, then Swansea have every chance of achieving something special under Garry Monk between now and May.
