Nottingham Forest: Reds showing an ‘interest’ in Andre Ayew
Nottingham Forest are showing a late ‘interest’ in forward Andre Ayew ahead of a potential return to the Premier League, according to journalist Toby Cudworth.
The Lowdown: Ayew profiled
The Ghana international made the move to Qatar to join Al Sadd from Swansea City back in 2021, but having not put pen to paper on an extension, has recently been released and is now a free agent roaming the market to find his next destination.
The 33-year-old veteran has bags of experience in the top flight having previously carried out spells at West Ham United and the Welsh outfit, and there’s a chance that he could be staging a comeback, with five clubs now firmly in the race for his signature.
The Latest: Nottingham Forest eyeing Ayew
Taking to Twitter, Cudworth confirmed that Forest, alongside several other of their competitors, are all considering making a late approach for Ayew before tonight’s deadline.
“West Ham, Bournemouth, Southampton, Everton and Nottingham Forest have shown an interest in free agent Andre Ayew.
“The 33-year-old has lots of PL experience & is a potential late window option after leaving Al Sadd.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Ayew has been described as a player who ‘glides past opponents’ by journalist Josh Bunting, and he would be an extremely useful acquisition for Forest.
The Seclin native scored a remarkable 22 goals and provided three assists in 39 appearances for Al Sadd and is an extremely versatile player, having operated in an incredible nine different positions throughout his career (Transfermarkt).
Ayew is also the captain of Ghana’s national team so he would add plenty of leadership qualities and pedigree to Steve Cooper’s squad, making him the perfect candidate to put pen to paper at The City Ground.
