The 2011 African Footballer of the Year Andrew Ayew says that playing in Premier League would be an ‘honour’- as well as admitting he has been a Liverpool fan all his life, reports the Evening Standard.
CONTACT HAS BEEN MADE
The French Ligue 1 Forward confirmed that clubs have been in contact with his representatives in relation to summer move, however he has refused to reveal their identities.
“All my life I have been a Liverpool fan,” Ayew told Sky Sports. "When I was young I was watching the Liverpool games.
“Steven Gerrard is my favourite player. It will not be easy to see him leave in the summer, but we all need a new challenge.
“I have had a lot of different offers from different countries, but I will have to discuss with Marseille.
“I will make a decision soon, and look at the offers that are coming in and decide what is best for my future,” he added.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world today, and it would be an honour to play there.
“I talk a lot with my friends who have played there. Samuel Eto’o, Alex Song, Samir Nasri, Joey Barton have all given me great advice.
“I am still in contract with Marseille, so I cannot give names of clubs, but there has been contact”
The Ghanaian number 10 has been a success for Marseille this season, who are currently in fourth place in French Ligue 1- just five points off PSG who occupy the top spot.
CLUBS LINING UP FOR SIGNATURE
Ayew also said that he close to joining QPR in January, however he admitted that it wasn’t the right move for him:
“It’s true there were talks [with QPR], but at the time it was not the right move for me and Marseille, which is important too.
“Nothing could be agreed so we moved on.”
Ayew is out of contract in the summer and the Daily Mail have reported that Swansea have already made a contract offer- following their sale of striker Wilfried Bony.
