Asamoah Gyan has turned down four unnamed stellar clubs from England and Spain in the last 12 months, his elder brother Baffoe has revealed.
The 27-year-old has constantly been linked with clubs in Europe following his outstanding performances for United Arab Emirates side Al Ain.
He was previously linked with a return to Sunderland with West Ham and Everton believed to be interested.
His elder brother and ex-Ghana star Baffoe Gyan has revealed the Ghana skipper has turned down offers from some big European clubs.
“Asamoah is a listener and I am proud to have him as a brother. He is doing well at the moment and that has caught the eyes of some big clubs in both England and Spain in the past one year,” Baffoe told GHANAsoccernet.com
“Big players with huge pedigree have been to UAE but failed to find their feet over there.
“You are a journalist, compare the numbers and see if you can make those numbers without being on form.”
The Black Stars captain won the Golden Boot Award for the third successive time with 29 goals this season and currently leads the scorers’ chart in the Asian Champions League with 10 goals.
He is expected to captain the Black Stars to the World Cup for the first time.
