HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that Swansea City are poised to land Andre Ayew on three-year contract.
It has been widely reported that the Ghana international - who has also been heavily linked with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United - was in South Wales on Wednesday to undergo a medical.
With a deal now close to being completed, it is understood that the 25-year-old will be committing to the Swans until the summer of 2018.
That agreement should allow Garry Monk’s men to benefit from his talents at the peak of his powers, with the Premier League outfit acquiring an experienced performer with the potential to scale even greater heights.
Ayew arrives in British football having spent his entire career to date in France.
The son of Marseille legend Abedi Pele, the highly-rated forward is on the move after eight years on the books as a senior professional at Stade Velodrome – during which he netted 52 goals in 181 appearances.
It remains to be seen where Monk will opt to use Ayew next season, but he will help to bolster the attacking ranks at the Liberty Stadium.
With Swansea having lost Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in the winter transfer window and allowed Nelson Oliveira to return to Benfica at the end of his loan spell, long-term reinforcements in the final third of the field will be most welcome.
