Aston Villa have received an £8 million offer from Hamburg for striker Jordan Ayew, the Daily Mail reports.

Ayew is said to have been the subject of enquiries from West Ham United, Bordeaux and Galatasaray following Villa's relegation to the Championship.

However, new owner Tony Xia insisted the Ghanaian would be staying put in a Twitter post over the weekend.

That said, Hamburg's offer would allow Villa to recoup the money they paid for Ayew a year ago, and is generous considering the 24-year-old's goal return, which was slightly better than one every five matches last season.

Last month, Xia told the Birmingham Mail a new striker was "a priority" for Villa, and the sale of Ayew would increase the club's need for attacking reinforcements.

The former Lorient player isn't the only Villan said to be attracting continental interest, with the Sun reporting the exits of Carlos Sanchez and Jordan Veretout to Marseille as "close" on Monday.
