Celtic leading the race to sign Jordan Ayew

Swansea City forward Jordan Ayew is reportedly attracting interest from Scottish league champions Celtic.

Swansea could lose several key players following their relegation to the English Football League Championship, and Ayew could be one of the first out the door.

According to English media outlet Daily Star, Brendan Rodgers’ side are leading the chase for the forward, who is also reportedly also in talks with Liverpool.

Celtic could lose star forward Moussa Dembele this summer and are in the hunt for a possible replacement, hence the move for Ayew.

Ayew had an impressive season with the Swans, scoring 11 goals and providing 2 assists.

His exploits saw him finish the season as Swansea City`s top scorer, as well as winning players’ player of the season, and claiming the award for the Swans’ goal of the season.

Ayew joined the Swans in 2017 after a move from English championship side Aston Villa.
