English premiership side, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Marseille wonderkid Andre Ayew but they are unlikely to land him during the current transfer window.

The French-born son of son of African legend Abedi Pele, is currently away representing his country in the African Cup of Nations.

The promising 18-year-old is not due to return to Marseille until after the end of the month so a move is unlikely to happen until the summer at the earliest.

Marseille are thought to want around ?5million for the youngster who has now become a regular in Erik Gerets' first team but there would be intense competition for his signature.

"Arsenal have sent scouts to watch him almost every week," revealed a source close to Ayew.
