Ghana international Ayew, 25, is out of contract this summer and is reportedly being trailed by Arsenal, Newcastle and Swansea .

Italian sides Rome and Napoli are also considered suitors for the player, who has scored 11 goals for club and country this season.

And it appears Marseille will struggle to hold onto their star man after he revealed he isn’t interested in reducing his £3million-a-year wages.

“I will announce my decision when it is taken,” Ayew told le10sport when quizzed over his future.

“I (will) look at all offers carefully.
“I want to finish well with the Marseille. My future is taking up more and more space in my head.

“We will discuss it with the Marseille.
“Lower my salary to stay at Marseille? Would you lower your salary?”

Arsenal are seeking a new striker to accompany Olivier Giroud up top, while both Swansea and Newcastle with see free agent Ayew as a significant addition for their squads heading into next season.

Last month Ayew spoke about leaving French football, stating: “The Premier League is the best league in the world today, and it would be an honour play there.

“I talk to a lot with my friends who have played there. Samuel Eto’o, Alex Song, Samir Nasri, Joey Barton have all given me great advice about the Premier League.”
