Crystal Palace & Everton are fighting to sign striker Jordan Ayew [L’Equipe]

The future of Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew is discussed in French daily L’Equipe on Sunday, and it’s fair to say that the 22-year-old is in demand.

Ayew was signed by Ligue 1 outfit Lorient on a permanent deal from Marseille in July 2014. He went on to have a fantastic season last term, scoring 12 goals and adding five assists for Les Merlus which contributed to their narrow escape from relegation.

Ayew’s current deal at Lorient expires in 2018.

Now a group of clubs across Europe are looking to land the African this summer, say L’Equipe, with Crystal Palace, Everton and Aston Villa all named by the French broadsheet as potential suitors for the striker.

The Premier League trio are joined by Borussia Dortmund in the race for Ayew, as the Germans prepare to sell Ciro Immobile to Spanish side Sevilla.

French side Lille are also interested in Ayew, say L’Equipe. A copy of the article is below.

Were Jordan to move to England, he’d likely face off against his brother Andre in the 2015-16 season after he joined Swansea earlier in the transfer window.
