West Ham open talks with £70,000-a-week Ligue 1 star

West Ham United have opened talks with Marseille’s Andre Ayew as they look to sign the pacey winger on a free transfer this summer, according to the Sun.

Ayew has scored ten goals with six assists this season and scooped the best African player in France award on Monday.

His contract with Marseille expires at the end of June and he could be set to leave French football after eight seasons with a move to the Premier League.

West Ham look to be leading the chase for the 25-year-old Ghanaian and are willing to offer him £70,000-a-week to secure his services, an amount that the club are willing to pay because there will not be a transfer fee involved.

Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United have all previously been linked with Ayew in the past and could make an approach when his contract expires, but a move to the Hammers would guarantee him regular first team football.

Would Andre Ayew be a good signing for West Ham this summer? Is he worth £70,000 per week?
