Reported Arsenal target Andre Ayew has confirmed that he will be leaving Marseille at the end of the season, bringing an end to his five-year stint with the club that his father, Abedi Pele, achieved legendary status for.
Speculation regarding a move to the Premier League is now set to go into overdrive, with the Gunners said to be battling Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur for his signature, as well as clubs on the continent like Roma.
Where Ayew will end up is anyone’s guess at this time but the Arsenal target has confirmed he will be on the move this summer, as he said:
“The president has spoken thus everything has been brought out into the open more or less. I am going to leave the club and it is a page turned.”
“There are lots of thing behind the decision. We tried to find a solution which would enable me to stay but for both parties it was complicated, whether it be for sporting or financial reasons.”
“I was expecting more, I wished that the club would have a more competitive team for next year that could be title contenders and that is not certain.
“Also the club cannot offer me the same salary that I’m on at the moment,”
Should Arsenal fight their competitors to sign Ayew, or should the club pursue other targets instead?
