Andre Ayew is likely to leave Marseille for the Premier League this summer, according to the club’s president Vincent Labrune.
Ayew’s contract at the Stade Veledrome expires at the end of the season and the winger has made it clear that he wants to leave the Ligue 1 giants this summer.
The 25-year-old’s refusal to pen a new deal has caught the eyes of a number of Europe’s big boys, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
And according to Labrune, the Ghana star – who moved to the south of France in 2007 – is likely to join an English team in the upcoming transfer window.
“We can’t keep Ayew,” Labrune said. “He is a very important player for OM but we can’t offer him the kind of money that English clubs can offer.
“The French financial system is complicated and we can’t offering him an equivalent salary to what he can earn in England.
“And equally, we can’t ask Ayew, who we love and is an icon for our team, to accept a lower salary.
“That makes no sense so unfortunately he is going to quit the club and we hope he has a great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.”
