Marseille star Andre Ayew is set to find himself at the centre of a Mexican stand off for his services this summer with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all vying for his signature, according to the Daily Star.
Ayew’s deal on the French riviera comes to a close at the end of the season and he has made it clear to club president Vincent Labrune that he will not be signing an extension.
And the 25-year-old’s refusal to commit his future to the club has sparked some major interest amongst a number of Europe’s top clubs.
Armed with the information, Labrune believes that the Ghanaian international will make the move to the Premier League during the upcoming transfer window, with three of the top flight’s biggest clubs all taking an interest.
“We can’t keep Ayew,” Labrune said. “He is a very important player for OM but we can’t offer him the kind of money that English clubs can offer.
“The French financial system is complicated and we can’t offering him an equivalent salary to what he can earn in England.
“And equally, we can’t ask Ayew, who we love and is an icon for our team, to accept a lower salary.
“That makes no sense so unfortunately he is going to quit the club and we hope he has a great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.”
