Jordan Ayew has been relegated three times in the last six years with Sochaux, Aston Villa and Swansea City.
But it seems that Crystal Palace and Fulham are willing to overlook this worrying omen as they aim to beef up their attacking ranks before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
According to the Mirror, the London clubs are going head-to-head to sign the Ghanaian international, who has allegedly gone AWOL from Swansea in an attempt to force a move back to the Premier League.
The South Wales side want £12 million for a player who scored 11 goals last season.
Sky Sports reported in June that Fulham had an £8 million bid rejected for Ayew, while Crystal Palace’s attempts to land him in a swap deal with Jairo Riedewald fell through when the Dutchman rejected a move to the Liberty Stadium, according to the Sun (2 August, page 51).
So it is clear that Fulham and Palace must now increase their offers and meet Swansea’s asking price if they want to bring Ayew to either Craven Cottage or Selhurst Park.
A quick and versatile attacker, he would give the clubs some extra options in attack as they aim to secure Premier League survival next season.
