Leicester City have reportedly turned their attention towards Swansea City’s Jordan Ayew, looking to take the exciting Ghanaian back to the Premier League this summer.
Ayew was a key component of the Swansea side that dropped out of the top flight last season, bagging 11 goals and four assists. He was named Player of the Year, which may not have been comfort given the side were relegated, but pointed to his huge potential.
The Times report that Leicester will now look to splash some of the £60m they received from Manchester City for Riyad Mahrez on Ayew, who has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium all summer.
Ayew had previously been linked with Liverpool and Celtic, but as that interest dies down it is former Premier League Champions Leicester who have emerged as favourites for his signature.
Ayew is certainly good enough to play in the top flight and seems set to move away from South Wales in order to pursue that ambition.
If the price is right, this will be a good move for Graham Potter’s side, he’ll get money to spend on his own squad. It would be better if it happened soon though, they’ll need time to spend any incoming fee.
