Reported Arsenal and Manchester United target Andre Ayew has admitted he is flattered to be linked with Bayern Munich reports

The 21-year-old Marseille midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Stade Velodrome, but the Ghanaian international insists he is enjoying life in France.

"I am happy with Marseille," said Ayew. "This club is like my home so I am delighted to wear this shirt.

"My family also feel like they belong here - my dad loves this club and I am no different."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Ayew's, and was believed to be considering an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in January.

However, the youngster - who has also attracted the attention of Barcelona and Manchester United - intends to see out the season playing alongside his brother Jordan in Ligue 1 before deciding on his future.

Red Devils chief Sir Alex Ferguson is also weighing up an offer to take Ayew to Old Trafford, but both Manchester United and Arsenal are behind Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the pecking order for his signature - after the German club reportedly tabled a bid starting at £8.5million, which could rise to as much as £12.5million with add-ons.

"A club like Bayern is one of the great clubs so when they show an interest you take notice," added Ayew. "Nothing is done yet though."
