Reported Liverpool target ‘no preference between Italy and England’

Marseille Velodrome

Marseille forward André Ayew has been frequently linked with Liverpool but there are also Italian teams hovering and he seems to be keeping options open.

Marseille's André Ayew will be a free agent in the summer and he could receive offers from several clubs, including Liverpool, Inter and Juventus.

Ayew has been superb in a revelatory Marseille side so far this season and his father, former three-time African Footballer of the Year Abedì Pelè has been fielding questions about his future. 

"It's true that his contract expires in the summer, but right now we are just thinking about playing and winning for Marseille," he told TMW.

"Then we will see. There are possibilities in Italy and in England, but that's for later.

"There is no preference between England and Italy. Of course there are great teams in Italy such as Inter, Milan, Napoli and Juventus, but there haven't been any approaches yet."

Ayew is 24 and can be deployed either as a winger or a second striker. He has made 139 appearances for Marseille and scored 36 goals.
