The 25-year-old, who has won 62 caps for Ghana, could be set to arrive on a free from French giants Marseille.
Harry Redknapp joined Twitter recently, and he has already unveiled some revelations in his short time on the social network, the latest being that Marseille winger Andre Ayew is heading to Swansea City to sign on a free transfer.
It would be some signing for Garry Monk's side, and a sure sign of their establishment as a Premier League force, considering Tottenham and West Ham were linked with the player who has real proven quality.
Heard Swansea are close to signing Andre Ayew from Marseille. He's on the way there with his agent Mark Mackay to do the deal. Good player.— Harry Redknapp (@Redknapp) June 9, 2015
Ayew is one of the biggest names in African football, having starred in Ligue 1 for several years.
He also has heritage when it comes to footballing ability, being the son of Ghanian favourite Abedi Pele, but the winger has already proved that he is a quality footballer in his own right, top-scoring in the recent African Cup of Nations and netting 60 goals in over 200 appearances for L'OM.
Swansea have impressed with their attractive football since arriving in the Premier League four years ago, and secured their highest ever finish of eighth position last season in Garry Monk's first full campaign in charge.
If Redknapp is right, and an international star like Ayew is set to arrive this summer, the Swans could look even higher than that, and focus on establishing themselves as one of the best sides in the league.
