81.3% passing accuracy: The key man Swansea must hold on to this January transfer window



Swansea City will be bracing themselves for transfer interest in Andre Ayew following his impressive form this season, but the Welsh side are yet to receive any firm offer for the Ghanaian, according to WalesOnline.

Ayew has netted 11 goals in his 25 appearances since returning from his loan spell at Fenerbahce over the summer, with Swansea often depending on his electric form to see them through some difficult matches so far this term.

The 30-year-old’s excellent performances have reportedly led Premier League side Tottenham expressing an interest in his services, according to Ghana Soccernet, but it is now being reported that Swansea have not yet received any bids for him.

The sixth-placed side could be tempted to listen to offers for Ayew given their precarious financial situation at present, but there can be no denying that the attacker’s departure would have significant repercussions for the Liberty Stadium side.

Here, we take a closer look at Ayew’s statistics for the Swans this term…

1. How much did Swansea sign Jake Bidwell for in the summer?

Ayew faced an uncertain future at the Liberty Stadium following his Turkish loan spell last term, but he was quickly re-installed to the Swansea side by Steve Cooper, and has since registered 2285 minutes of action in his 25 games this term.

The Ghana international was criticised for his lack of goals during the second half of Swansea’s relegation-doomed season in 2017/18, but he has been firmly among the goals in the second tier this term by finding the net 11 times in total.

He has also turned provider on four occasions for Cooper’s side, with the winger becoming a key part of Swansea’s attacking unit during the first half of the campaign, and he will be integral to any possible promotion push this campaign.

Ayew has become a real leader on the pitch for the Swans and he is often looked to seize the initiative in matches, with his 2.44 shots per game suggesting he is definitely not afraid to test the goalkeeper when leading his side’s attacking exploits.

The 30-year-old’s overall game play has also been highly impressive as he has often provided the link between midfield and attack for the Swans, with his strong passing accuracy of 81.3% revealing the extent of his strong displays across the pitch.

Swansea’s key man has also proven his ability to win the ball back for his side with his 2.88 interceptions per game this campaign, and this impressive number further indicates the importance of Ayew’s overall contribution to his side.
