Jordan Ayew linked with a move to Fulham

Written by Gideon Sarpong

Newly-promoted English Premier League side Fulham are in talks to sign Jordan Ayew from Swansea City for £8m, according to reports in England.

The London-based side have taken the lead over Liverpool and Celtic who are also interested in signing Jordan Ayew this summer.

Ayew is wanted by both Liverpool and Celtic, who have a serious interest in the Swansea forward.

The 26-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium following his side’s relegation from the Premier League.

He was top scorer for the Swans this term with 11 goals and was named Players’ Player of the season.

Liverpool have given the player some consideration but insists the more serious interest has come from Brendan Rodgers.

He is regarded as one of the Welsh club's best players, and they will struggle to keep a hold of Ayew this summer with only Championship football to look forward to next season.

Interest is expected in Ayew, and he is apparently already being targeted by Liverpool and Celtic; the latter are said to have a serious interest in the Ghana international.

Ayew, 26, scored seven Premier League goals in 2017/18 as Swansea were relegated from the top flight.
