West Ham United have rejected an approach for Ghana froward Andre Ayew from former club Swansea City, according to reports from the UK media.
The offer, Sky Sports claims, was worth up to £14m with add-ons, but the Hammers value Ayew at £20m – the price they paid Swansea when they signed him two summers ago.
A deal between the clubs is unlikely, with sources close to Ayew insisting he is not keen on a return to the Liberty Stadium.
West Ham are short of options up front after Andy Carroll injured an ankle and may also be reluctant to sell a player to a direct rival in the lower reaches of the Premier League.
Andre Ayew joined Swansea from Marseille in 2015 and enjoyed a superb debut campaign in England, scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances.
He has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at West Ham since he joined in August 2016 in a then club-record deal for the club.
The 28-year-old has scored 12 goals in 50 appearances for Hammers, but this season he has managed three top-flight goals in 18 appearances.
