Marseille midfielder Andre Ayew, who has been linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United, has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League – but is interested in joining Liverpool.
The 23-year-old, who has also been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Chelsea over the past twelve months, was widely expected to leave Marseille last summer, with many of Europe’s elite clubs thought to have been monitoring his progress.
The Ghana international had insisted throughout 2012 that he would only consider a transfer if a deal that suited all parties concerned came his way.
Marseille are believed to be ready to sell Ayew, who is under contract until 2015, and he told Telefoot when asked about playing in the Premiership: “It’s a league I always think of.
“I am Ghanaian and an English speaker, and the English league is the one most watched in Ghana.
“I have a strong preference for England. I am not seeking to leave but, if interested clubs have the number of president Labrune…”
Ayew also admitted a move to Liverpool appealed to him, adding: “As for Liverpool … yes, I have followed them since I was young.”
