Liverpool target Dede Ayew

Liverpool is interested in signing deputy Ghana skipper Andre Ayew from Swansea, reports the Portuguese newspaper O Jogo.

The Swans are looking to re-sign Wilfred Bony from Manchester City, but they would need to sell Ayew in order to fund the deal.

The Welsh club believes the Reds are interested in the Ghanaian international who is a self-confessed boyhood fan of Liverpool.

Ayew has had a good first season in the Premier League after joining from French side Marseille on a free transfer last summer.

The 26-year-old scored twelve goals and provided two assists in 34 league matches last campaign, and performed well despite the Welsh club struggling in the league, finishing in 12th position after spending a great deal of the season in the relegation places.

The forward, who can play on the right or left-hand side of attack, was Swansea’s top scorer last season, one ahead of Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

He was linked with a move to Sunderland back in May.
