Jordan Ayew becomes target of several EPL clubs
Jordan Ayew is the target for several English Premier League for next season following the relegation of Aston Villa, agents close to the Ghana striker have told Ghanasoccernet.com.
Agents with strong connections in the English markets have told Ghana's leading football news outfit Ayew is among the most sought after players as clubs prepare to bolster their squads.
At least four clubs are said to have expressed interest in the Ghana attacker who is not keen on playing in the English second tier next term.
This comes after his club Aston Villa were relegated from the top-flight in disgrace but the Ghanaian was the only stand-out talent in the squad.
His pedigree in the Ghana squad will also be hugely hit if he decides to play in the Championship and with interest from clubs in the Premier League, Ayew is most likely to leave.
Perhaps the Ghana international striker is the only player whose reputation has not been damaged by Villa's sharp downward spiral.
He cost the claret and blues a fair whack, but has at least played like someone worth close to the £8.5 million transfer fee.
Ayew has accounted for seven (26 per cent) of Villa's 27 league goals in his first season in English football.
The Ghanian has shown he can cut it in the Premier League and could be an attractive proposition for Albion, with a revamp of the forward line badly needed.
