Fulham make £8m move for Jordan Ayew – report

Ghana’s Jordan Ayew could still feature in the Premier League next season. He is being linked with a move to returnees Fulham FC.

A Sky Sports report Tuesday claims the Cottagers have opened talks with Swansea City over an £8 million deal to sign the striker this summer.

Fulham clinched promotion to the Premier League with a 1-0 Championship play-off final win over Aston Villa last month, and manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be looking for reinforcements.

Ayew, 26, didn’t make much of an impact with Aston Villa following a 2015 move from Lorient, and was moved on to Swansea in January 2017 as part of Neil Taylor’s move to Villa.

Last term, the Ghanaian attacker hit 11 goals in all competitions, thriving in the Swansea front line despite their relegation to the Championship – and it’s no surprise that he is receiving Premier League interest.

Jordan Ayew is likely to want a return to the top flight, and Fulham are now looking to land something of a coup by bringing him to Craven Cottage in a reasonably-priced deal.

Swansea are likely to demand more money given that this appears to be Fulham’s first bid, but Jokanovic and co may well be confident of luring Ayew to West London this summer.
