Manchester United, Liverpool enter last-minute race to sign Marseille's Andre Ayew
English giants Manchester United and arch rival Liverpool have entered the last-minute race to sign Ghana winger Andre Ayew from Marseille before the transfer window closes midnight.
This comes after the France-based winger rejected a move to English side Hull City because the asking price for youngster was too high for the Tigers.
The revelation has sparked interest from all over the place in the youngster which has led to Manchester United and Liverpool joining the race to sign him.
According to the English newspaper Express, both Man Utd and Liverpool are back in the race to sign the son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele after being previously linked with the winger.
These rumours have been flying around for the last few days, despite Ayew seemingly featuring prominently in the plans of new Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa.
The Argentine has used the forward in all four of their Ligue 1 games so far this season, with the Lille native having impressed in their recent 4-0 thrashing of Nice.
It would be a surprise to see him leave Marseille, and his capture would no doubt be a coup for those middling Premier League sides.
He’s a versatile, quick attacker capable of playing anywhere across the attack, with intelligent movement and excellent dribbling his best attributes. If he does move to England, he shouldn’t have a problem adapting to the game.
One of the most in-demand players on transfer deadline day is Marseille attacker André Ayew, who is reportedly subject to interest from several clubs in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old Ghanaian international has been linked with Aston Villa, Hull City, Swansea City and Queens Park Rangers, and would apparently cost in the region of £8 million.
