The Sunderland fans playing darts could have some renewed hope for their season after South Wales Evening Post reported that the Wearside club are set to launch a second bid for Swansea City striker Andrew Ayew.
The Black Cats have already seen a £10 million offer rejected by the Swans for the forward, whilst they could still have competition for his signature with Liverpool apparently keen.
Our resident Sunderland fans will know all too well about the goalscoring potential of the Ghanaian, with his latest goal coming against their side last week.
Sunderland have already signed striker Dame N’Doye on loan this month, but manager Sam Allardyce is keen to bolster his options by bringing in an established Premier League goalscorer.
Sunderland fans will be happy to hear that Allardyce’s determination could see his side return with an improved offer for the former Marseille man, who has scored 7 league goals in 21 appearances.
However, one landlord believes that Swansea will probably be reluctant to sell their top players when they are trying to add to their squad, especially not to other struggling Premier League outfits, although one punter over by the slot machines has pointed out that Jonjo Shelvey has already left the stuggling Swans for Newcastle this month.
Sunderland fans, could Ayew be an inspiration for your struggling side? Let us know in the comments below!
