Is Liverpool the best fit for André Ayew this summer?
Ghanaian midfielder André Ayew, out of contract at the end of the season, played his last game for the club, helping them to a 3-0 win over Bastia. Despite the victory, Monaco’s 1-0 win at Lorient meant that they pipped Ayew’s club for the last Champions League place.
It had been rumoured all week that Ayew may have to miss the final game with an injury, but in keeping with the desire and passion he has played with for the last eight years, he lined up one last time, playing all 90 minutes.
Over the course of the season, Ayew has been linked with moves to Liverpool, Everton, Spurs and a few teams from Italy and Germany by sources such as the Express. It is testament to the player that he will likely have so many offers on the table.
Liverpool would be a great option for Ayew. He offers versatility, a great attacking option down the left, and would provide and create goals from all over the front-line. Signing Ayew should depend on who is at the club next season, and that may not be decided before Ayew makes his mind up.
At Roma, French coach Rudi Garcia plays the same system as Marseille – 4-2-3-1 – and could really do with a player that can add a new dimension to the attack.
Ayew brings power, determination and a threat popping up at the back post to score some vital goals. Although he couldn't score on Saturday, he has found the back of the net 44 times during his OM career.
England may be the financially attractive move, but playing under a coach like Garcia in Rome, would suit his style better than Liverpool.
Come the start of July, we may know which club has won Ayew’s hand.
