Andre Ayew opens West Ham United talks

Marseille winger Andre Ayew has opened talks with English side West Ham United, according to reports in the United Kingdom.

Reports in the Sun say the Hammers sent chief scout Martin Glover to watch the Marseille winger, as he starred in the 4-0 win over Lille on the weekend.

They claim the East London outfit have opened talks with the Ghanaian, who has revealed he plans to leave France this summer.

The 25-year-old celebrated his final days with Marseille by being named the best African player in France’s Ligue 1 on Monday night.

Ayew finished ahead of Ivory Coast’s Max Gradel (Saint-Etienne) and Tunisia’s Aymen Abdennour (Monaco) to be recognised the best African player in the French top-flight.

The winger — a member of the Ghana side that lost to Ivory Coast 9-8 on penalties in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations final — was picked by a jury of journalists and received the Marc-Vivien Foe Trophy handed out by French radio station RFI and TV channel France 24.
