Director of Berekum Chelsea, Nana Oduro Sarfo believes Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew is likely to join Scottish champions Celtic in the summer transfer window.

The former Aston Villa forward was a delight to watch in the just ended English Premier League, where he netted 11 goals, as they ended their seven-year stay in the Premier League.

Ayew was named Swansea's top scorer and Players' Player of the season, which has sparked summer transfer rumour to Merseysiders, Liverpool and Everton.

And according to the astute football administrator, who is close to the hitman's family, has hinted that the Hoops are ready to table a bid for the services of the Ghana striker.

'Jordan has had offers from several clubs after Swansea City's relegation last season. He will surely not play in the Championship with them,' Sarfo told Onua FM.

'Liverpool has shown interest in him but Scottish side Celtic and their coach seem to be serious with their interest. I believe he may go to Scotland looking at how events are unfolding since they want to meet every demand.

'They speak English just like in England so he can express himself well in there and meet the expectations in the league,' he added.
