Andre Ayew is attracting interest from many English sides
Ghana winger Andre Ayew is facing some anxious 24 hours as he is expected to sign for an English club by tonight’s deadline with QPR, Swansea, Hull and Newcastle all interested in signing the youngster.
QPR are facing stiff competition in their attempt to complete a last-minute deal for Andre Ayew, with Swansea City also reported to be keen on the 24-year-old.
The Marseille winger is keen to complete a move away from the French giants with the Premier League his preferred transfer destination.
QPR had previously led the way for the Ghana international, but they could now face a fight to recruit the attacker amid rumours of growing interest from the Swans.
Harry Redknapp is desperate to add some quality to his Rangers squad, with the London club gearing up for another relegation battle.
Swansea boss Garry Monk, meanwhile, has identified Ayew as the ideal addition to his group, with the Welsh club keen to build on the positive start they have enjoyed in the Premier League, having won three games from three so far.
The mood around QPR, meanwhile, has been lifted after the club recorded their first win of the season at home to Sunderland.
Redknapp is still eager to complete a deal for Ayew following the departure of Loic Remy to Chelsea.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew wants to sign the Ghana international winger on loan for the 2014/15 campaign.
The Marseille man is on the verge of a loan transfer to the Premier League.
Ayew, who has been regularly linked with a move to England in previous seasons, has found first team opportunities somewhat limited in recent months and could now be heading for an exit.
Marseille had hoped to sell the player but with a shortage of interest in a permanent deal, Ayew is now set for a loan transfer to England instead.
Marseille will receive approximately 1.25 million euros for approving a loan deal.
Valued at around £10 million for a permanent deal, a transfer tug-of-war could ensue in the next 24 hours, with Swansea unlikely to give up easily.
Ayew was one of the few shining lights for Ghana at the World Cup in Brazil, scoring well-taken goals against the USA and Germany during the group phase.
