Sunderland must launch record breaking offer to sign influential Premier League striker

ayewayewayewmmssSunderland fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are exciting heading into the summer window as their club are looking to improve their whole squad.

According to the Sunderland Echo, in order to land Swansea talisman Andre Ayew, the Black Cats will have to break their transfer record of £13 million, which is the amount the club spent on Asamoah Gyan in 2010.

Experienced boss Sam Allardyce knows the club survived in the Premier League last term by the skin of their teeth, and with a track record of stabilising clubs, he will understand how important it is to improve his side.

After making astute signings in January, which played a huge part in their survival, the Sunderland board are rumoured to back Allardyce strongly in this window.

Swansea boss has made it clear he is determined to keep hold of Ayew – after all, he did finish as the club’s top goal scorer last season.

But it is believed that if Sunderland are serious about their interest, then it will cost them in excess of £15 million to bring him to the Stadium of Light.
