Swansea bid to sign Marseille striker Andre Ayew amid rival offers from Newcastle and Everton.



Swansea have made a contract offer to Marseille striker Andre Ayew.

The 25-year-old Ghana international is out of contract in the summer and free to talk to foreign clubs.

Ayew, who scored for Ghana against World champions Germany and USA in last summer's World Cup, has also attracted offers from Newcastle and Everton while Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund have expressed interest too.

Ayew, son of former Ghana midfielder Abedi Pele, is keen to move to the Premier League but will discuss his options at the end of the season.

Swansea, meanwhile, have expressed an interest in Schalke full-back Christian Fuchs.


The 29-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is keen on a move to the Premier League. Austria international captain Fuchs is vastly experienced and renowned for his set-piece ability and crossing. He was outstanding in Schalke's 4-3 Champions League win over Real Madrid last month.

Swansea have been looking at bringing in another left-back since the summer with West Bromwich Albion keen to sign Neil Taylor for around £4million.

Fuchs has been discussing a new deal with Schalke but has also had interest in England from Sunderland, Hull and Fulham over the past year.

Discussing new terms for Fuchs, Schalke director of football Horst Heldt said: 'We will make a decision only at the end of the season.'
