Liverpool and Everton have been handed a boost in their chase for Marseille winger Andre Ayew, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The Ghanaian forward has opened up a move to the Premier League by turning down further contract offers from the French giants, giving both Merseyside clubs an indication that he would be interested in a switch.
The two sides are joined by a series of other English clubs in chasing Ayew, with Swansea City, Hull City and West Ham United all believed to be interested in bringing the talented forward in.
Ayew is now set on running down his contract with Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
The player is demanding a deal worth £50,000 a week, which the club are refusing to meet, as it would break their wage structure.
Ayew is well aware that a move to the Premier League could net him the money he is hoping for, and is therefore waiting for a switch to materialise.
