The Swansea City fans in the Transfer Tavern are very worried about relegation and believe that new recruits are needed this month to help keep them up in the Premier League. The Swans are currently rooted to the bottom of the top flight and their tally of 16 points leaves them four short of safety.
Numerous rumours are circulating right now as Swansea look to improve their attack as well as other areas. Their tally of thirteen goals in 22 league games this season ranks them as the least prolific side in the entire division. Indeed, some more fire power in the attacking regions is needed desperately.
One player they should definitely look at bringing in is former star Andre Ayew. The Ghana international impressed in his only year at The Liberty Stadium, scoring twelve league goals to help keep them up. Now he is at West Ham, though is not the preferred choice for them.
The Hammers prefer to use the likes of Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez in the centre-forward roles and then David Moyes seems to prefer choosing Michail Antonio, Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Arthur Masuaku in his wing and attacking midfield departments. It seems that Ayew is an expendable member of the West Ham squad.
But the Irons’ loss could be Swansea’s gain. Ayew would bring back some attacking flair to South Wales and he would have a point to prove. The 28-year-old has shown glimpses of magic during his time in East London – including a double in West Ham’s win over Spurs at Wembley in the cup – and they should probably keep him as a back-up option.
But they seem willing to sell and Swansea should jump at this opportunity in order to maximise their chances of survival.
