Marseille's Ghanaian winger Andre Ayew confirms he wants Liverpool move

Andre Ayew wants to move to Liverpool

Marseille winger Andre Ayew has outlined his desire to join Premier League giants Liverpool this summer after seeing his stock rise following his World Cup campaign with Ghana, according to the Daily Mirror.

 Ayew performed impressively for the Black Stars in South America during the tournament, where he managed to get himself on the scoresheet twice against the USA and eventual winners Germany.

 He has been linked with Premier League trio Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle as well as a host of European clubs but, according to reports in France, he is desperate to join the Anfield club.

However, despite his enthusiasm for the move, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has yet to confirm his interest in the 24-year-old.

It is thought that he is keen to leave the south coast club following their disappointing sixth placed finish in Ligue 1 last term, and his £60,000 per week wage demands have put off Italian pair Napoli and AC Milan.

In May he said: “The Premier League is a league every player dreams about.

“The English league is the one most followed in Ghana. It’s true that I have a real preference for England.

“I like everything about it; the atmosphere, the game, the fans. There is a lot of intensity. It is a beautiful championship.”

However, Newcastle could also be tempted to launch a move after being spurned for his signature last summer.

    Dede is yet to come up with that one big season when you have 4-5 top teams chasing after his signature ..I think he can do it at the very top but Liverpool already bought 6 players ahead of him and they are well covered in his position ..that one big season is vital ..I think his club are going offer him a new contract to protect his value but he still have options ..just not the kind he wants tho'

    some ghana big players' chances were blown by the poor management of our wc 2014 campaign. european teams are cautious when signing african players normally; some stereotypes which sometimes are racist about black people as lazy and trouble makers are often deeply ingrained in the pysche of some european managers. African going to play in a tournament in africa fills some european ,managers with dread i.e. whether they will come back with malaria, ebola, injury or whatever.What happened with the african teams at the world cup has undermined african players real bad. first before the world cup yaya toure threatend to leave man city because he was ignored on his birthday?Song goes to world cup and attack people on the pitch, then match fixing etc,then nigeria then ghana . it raises so many questions about african player's temperament, motivation and focus and whether it will make sense to buy a player and then release him to be demotivated and disrespected and expect him to come back and play well for the club. All is not lost Andre. Am very confident you will be in the EPL soon. You are better than a lot of the players being signed to the EPL. you are proven at the highest level in europe and are a big game player. bs and the african countries has not helped the cause of african players.

    am just telling it as it is. Am black and proud if you want to know. ideye brown who didnt feature at the world cup is the only big african player of note signed by the EPL. some of those colombian players and the like getting big money moves are not better than our lots. the world cup was in south america and if they should come into the EPL some will soon realise it is nothing like they ever know. All i was saying is that racial prejudice exists in the mind set of some europeans, and at the best of times they are very reluctant to sign african players except for the holding midfielder role because of such racial prejudice. So with what happened with the african teams and players at the world cup it will be difficult for any chairman or manger who already have certain prejudices to go shell out money for african players. player are bought not just for ability alone but their temperament please google an interview by bbc with martinez during the world cup on scouting, how they will fit into the culture of the club, how they will get on with others and how they have the right attitude- and aptitude especially when the going gets tough. Before eboue left arsenal you know how much booing he was booed unfairly? teams buy who they think can cope. Our African players can but how their countries managed their 2014 campaigns have let them down and could well invoke stereotypes in the mind of some mangers which is such shame indeed.
