The Swansea City player is currently on loan at Crystal Palace.
Ayew joined Palace on a season-long deal at the start of the campaign, going on to score or make four goals in 23 games for the Eagles.
And the newspaper claims Swansea stand to receive most of the £5 million they paid Aston Villa for the Ghanaian - whom it adds Crystal Palace see as a decent squad player - two years ago.
If true, the news should come as a welcome boost to Swansea, who have made little secret of their need to cut costs as they face up to a second successive season outside of the Premier League.
Ayew, whose brother Andre is also on the Swans' books, is due to enter the final year of his contract this summer.
Would the Swansea striker make a good permanent addition for Crystal Palace?
