Swansea City are reportedly eyeing Adrew Ayew’s return to Liberty stadium in the January transfer.
According to The Guardian, Andre Ayew’s wages look set to scupper a return to Swansea City– but the Swans are still pursuing his West Ham United teammate Diafra Sakho.
Ayew, 28, was a star for Swansea following a 2015 move from Marseille, scoring 12 goals in his first Premier League season – and his form for the Swans earned him a move to West Ham in 2016, with former boss Slaven Bilic splashing out £20million to sign him.
The Ghanaian hasn’t quite lived up to those heights though with the Hammers, as he scored just six times in 25 Premier League outings last season, with six goals in 20 games in all competitions this term.
Despite Ayew’s goalscoring return this season, he remains a bit-part player in East London, and could be sold this month as David Moyes looks to re-tool his squad at the London Stadium.
Further reports suggest West Ham United are prepared to let Ayew leave, but a return to Swansea may be impossible unless the forward will reduce his wage demands in order to re-join the club and reunite with brother Jordan Ayew.
It’s noted that, whilst Swansea may be put off a deal for Ayew, they also hold an interest in his West Ham teammate Diafra Sakho, who is expected to move on this month.
West Ham are believed to be interested in Swansea defender Alfie Mawson and midfielder Ki Sung-yueng, and even though Ayew may not be used in a deal, Sakho could yet find himself heading to South Wales.
