Ghana striker Jordan Ayew advised to join Scottish side Celtic

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has been urged to consider a summer switch to Scottish champions Celtic.

This advise comes following Swansea City's relegation from the English Premier League to the English Championship.

Despite the Swans underwhelming season, forward Jordan Ayew has enjoyed a more successful individual campaign, managing a respectable 11 goals and two assists.

The former Aston Villa winger joined the Liberty Stadium in January last season in a swap deal that saw Wales international Neil Taylor move in the opposite direction.

According to BBC Sport, the Swans paid £5 million for the Ghana international. Following the club’s first relegation since they were promoted to the Premier League in 2011, a summer move may seem inevitable.

When considering his next destination, Ayew should look no further than the success of former Swansea fan favourite, Scott Sinclair.

Sinclair was a revelation in South Wales, before signing for Manchester City.

However, he failed to make an impact at the Etihad, and his move to Celtic proved to be a career-defining decision for the 29-year-old.

Now, the former Swan is on course to win a second treble at Celtic Park, and his individual performances in Brendan Rodgers’ side have not gone unnoticed.

Sinclair has gone on to win the PFA Scotland Player’s Player of the season as well as the SFWA Footballer of the Year back in 2017.

A move for Ayew could see a similar change of fortune with the Marseille-born attacker one of Swansea’s brighter performers this season.

The Ghanaian has boundless energy and provided a spark for his side throughout the season that has ultimately not been enough to keep the Swans up.

 He showed signs of brilliance in Ligue 1 but never hit the heights at Aston Villa.

His move to Swansea revived his career, but now the forward needs a move that will allow him to settle and enjoy his peak years.

Ayew is in an exciting place in terms of development. He is 26 and would cost some serious cash, but fits the profile of a versatile forward that Brendan Rodgers craves.
