Transfers of Sunday, 27 July 2014
Ghana utility playmaker Andre Ayew may end up signing for AC Milan after being offered to the Italian Serie A giants on Sunday.
According to the Italian sports newspaper Corriere dello Sport, he was offered to the club on Sunday as he is seeking a move away from French side Marseille.
The lack of title ambition by Marseille is said to have sparked the talented player’s desire to leave the club who are keen on keeping him.
Seeking reinforcements on the wings, the Rossoneri could be tempted by player profile of the 24-year-old, whose contract with Marseille expires in 2015
AC Milan must fend off competition with Serie A campaigners Napoli who are said to have offered 10 million euros for the winger.
If the Rossoneri fail in their bid to sign him, they have lined up Torino’s Alessio Cerci as a Plan B.
The 24-year-old is under contract at Olympique Marseille until June 2015, but has been highly tipped to leave the Stade Velodrome.
Ayew scored two goals at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil despite Ghana’s early elimination.
He had a quiet campaign last term due to injury and managed 25 Ligue 1 appearances with six goals in return.
