Reported winger target for Merseyside clubs admits uncertainty on his future

Marseille Velodrome

Marseille winger Andre Ayew has been linked to both Liverpool and Everton.

Winger Andre Ayew says he is unsure where he will play his football next season after running down his contract with Marseille, French publication L’Equipe reports.

The Ghana international’s contract at Marseille expires this summer and a move to the Premier League could be on the cards if recent reports are to be believed.

According to RMC Sport, Merseyside duo Liverpool and Everton have made contact for the player about a potential move this summer.

When quizzed on his future this weekend, Ayew admitted that he doesn’t know where he will be playing next season after doubting the ambitions of his current club.

"The door is always open. Today, I don't know what the future holds. Soon I will meet Mr Labrune (Marseille president) with my father, as I currently do not have an agent,” he explained.

"We are going to hear what the president has to say and after that I will decide the next step.

"If I have to stay at Marseille, it will be because the club has big ambitions and things are in place to keep it that way. But if this is not the case, our paths will separate but in a very nice way.

"I'm someone who likes to prepare for the future, but right now I just take it one day at a time."

Would Andre Ayew be a good fit for Everton or Liverpool?

The 25-year-old undoubtedly has talent and in 15 Ligue 1 starts for Marseille this season, he has scored four goals and added a further two assists.

Everton appear in need of fresh impetus on the wing and should the Toffees decide not to make Aaron Lennon or Christian Atsu’s loan deals permanent, there is scope for a new signing this summer.

Ayew wouldn’t cost anything due to his expiring contract and strength in depth could certainly help Roberto Martinez develop his slim-looking squad.

The Reds, on the other hand, have a surplus of wide players at the moment and, due to their change in formation, full-backs such as Alberto Moreno effectively play as wingers.

The rise of Jordon Ibe means Rodgers has the necessary numbers to compete, therefore it’s unlikely that Ayew would end up at Anfield despite the obvious appeal.
