Andre Ayew 'getting advice from Nasri' – Could Manchester City move beckon?

Imbula Marseille

Out-of-contract Marseille man Andre Ayew has admitted he is keen on a move to the Premier League and has spoken to the City attacker.

With Manchester City facing a busy and potentially expensive summer overhaul, the club could do worse than start the process with the recruitment of Andre Ayew.

The 25-year-old is coming to the end of his contract with Marseille and has seemingly set his heart on a move to the Premier League in the not too distant future.

A hard-working, committed and versatile attacker by trade, City could try and add the Ghanaian to their ranks this summer, particularly with Ayew being available on a free.

The good news for any Blues fans in favour of such an acquisition, meanwhile, is that the player has been taking advice on a move to England from another player currently residing at the Etihad.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, the African winger and supporting striker revealed he has been taking advice from one current Manchester City player and another who spent several happy years at the club.

Describing the idea of playing in the English top-flight as "an honour" the Ghana star went on to outline who he had discussed the subject with.

"I talk a lot with my friends who have played there. Samuel Eto’o, Alex Song, Samir Nasri, Joey Barton have all given me great advice about the Premier League," he said.

Whether that advice includes recommending a move to Manchester City remains to be seen, but with the Blues representing a far more attractive option than some of the clubs linked with Ayew, it’s not entirely inconceivable that a deal could happen.

Son of Marseille legend Abedi Ayew Pele, the forward has played almost 150 Ligue 1 games for L’OM scoring 41 goals and has been capped 62 times by Ghana scoring 11 goals along the way.

That tally includes two at the World Cup in Brazil last year as well as three goals at the most recent Africa Cup of Nations.
