Swansea still sweet on Ayew

Swansea are reported to be ready to test West Ham's resolve by submitting a second bid for Andre Ayew.

The Welsh club, in desperate trouble at the foot of the Premier League are keen to bring Ayew back to City - the club from whom he joined West Ham in a 20million switch in 2016.

But West Ham's reluctance to sell may have been strengthened in recent hours by the sale of Diafra Sakho to Rennes - although a purported second offer in the region of 18million would certainly give United's Board food for thought.

Although Ayew is West Ham's joint leading scorer this season with six goals to his name, he has failed to repeat his excellent form at the Liberty Stadium since moving to London.

However West Ham are unlikely to sanction a transfer until a replacement has been found - whilst further speculation tonight suggests that the Hammers have made enquiries with regards to former Southampton striker Graziano Pelle.

The 32-year-old Italian is currently playing his football in China with Shandong Luneng.
