Asamoah Gyan pinpointed as target by English Premier League strugglers

Several English top-flight clubs fighting to beat the drop have fixed their sights on Ghana international forward Asamoah Gyan.

The 28-year-old Ghana international is currently with Middle Eastern team Al Ain, which play in the United Arab Emirates, but it is understood he wants to return to England with the hope of getting into his national squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

West Ham and Stoke are two known clubs to have expressed an interest in the striker, who has netted 16 goals so far this season.

The Hammers have already inquired about the possibility of a loan move for Gyan, who earns a whopping £140,000 at Al Ain, and the east London club are willing to pay a significant percentage of his wages.

It appears Gyan has the choice of which side he wants to join, but he may wait to see if further offers come in.

    It's still a good idea to test his skills against world class defenders. Gyan's Brazilian team mate, Michel Bastos is on his way to Napoli on loan. It's time to forget about the money and think football till after the world cup!

    He is still the best striker we've known and has maintained a standard that would edge any team to go for him. He is our life line for the 2014 world cup. I believe he should go for the European bet and that would raise his image once more.
