West Ham look to France in bid to strengthen their squad

West Ham has had an impressive start to the Premiership this season and lie in 7th position in the league table, behind Arsenal only by goal difference. To keep the good work going, Sam Allardyce is looking forward to strengthening the squad further in the January transfer window and the Hammers are looking across the channel to France for fresh talent. The most recent footballer linked to the Hammers is Andre Ayew, the Ghanaian international and Marseille regular is keen on a January move to Upton Park.

Ayew, the son of legendary Abedi Pele sounds interested in the move, where his brother and fellow Marseille teammate Jordan would also join him. Ayew said to Sky Sports, “There is no official offer from West Ham but if such a possibility could arrive, we will talk about with our advisers. West Ham is an excellent team.”

Ayew is a utility player in the sense that he can play both as winger and striker and with squads typically growing thin as the season progresses, he can play multiple roles for the Hammers. The Ayew brothers have already made a mark for themselves at Marseille, and a fresh challenge awaits them at Upton Park. The Hammers’ faithful would hope that if the transfer goes through, the brothers live up to the rigours of the Premiership and forge a successful alliance with the club.
