Tottenham, West Ham-linked Andre Ayew hints at Premier League transfer this summer

Marseille's Andre Ayew will be a free agent this summer.

Marseille forward Andre Ayew has told the BBC that he wants a new challenge this summer - and admitted that a move to England could be on the cards.

Ayew, 25, is one of the most dangerous players in French football having scored 60 goals in the last five seasons for Marseille, proving himself as a goalscorer from out wide or behind a striker.

The Ghanaian international is a versatile forward who will now be hugely in demand this summer, with his Marseille contract set to expire this summer.

It's rare that players as productive as Ayew are available on free transfers, but now clubs have the chance to snap him up in a matter of weeks - with English clubs strongly linked.

ESPN suggested in April that Tottenham are leading the chase for his signature, whilst The Sun believe West Ham have already opened contract talks to engineer a move to East London this summer.

Now, Ayew - the son of legendary Ghanaian player Abedi Pele - has told the BBC that he is looking for a new challenge at the end of his Marseille contract, admitting that a move to the Premier League is a possibility; whilst also revealing that he supports Liverpool.

"I need to see something new - a new country, culture, league," said Ayew. "I want to prove my worth somewhere where people don't know me as well as they do in France."

"There are a lot of great clubs in England, of course the top four but down to the top 10. It's a great league, for me the best in the world at the moment. Every player would like to test themselves with the best in the world. it's something I'm looking at. What's important is going somewhere where they can showcase themselves," he continued.

"When I was a kid I supported two clubs, Marseille and Liverpool, I won't lie," added Ayew, who then said 'We'll see' when asked whether he could join the Reds this summer - another team to add to the list of potential suitors for Ayew.
