Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan has played his way onto Sir Alex Ferguson’s wish-list after a string of impressive performances on Wearside according to Tuttochampions.it.
The 25 year old Ghana international has scored nine goals and provided four assists in 23 Premier League games as Sunderland has surged up the table. He has become an instant hit with the fans due to his flamboyant style which is a result of his undiluted love of the game.
He was linked with Man United back in 2007 whilst playing for Italian side Udinese but injury hampered his season and he never had a chance to advertise his potential. An eccentric personality and keen rapper under the pseudonym “Baby Jet” he would be a welcome addition to the changing room.
He possesses impressive pace and a wonderful shot – he thrives off one-on-one situations and is lethal when cutting across the face of goal. Bruce would be extremely reluctant to let the club record signing leave in the summer with the Red Devil’s also expressing an interest in Gyan’s teammates Gordon and Henderson.
The loss of Darren Bent in January and the fact that Gyan has only been at the Stadium of Liht six months since signing for £13 million would probably mean no less than £20 million would be enough to test Sunderland’s reserve. TheBlack Cats are not inclined to sell and any deal with Sunderland would probably see Danny Wellbeck – on loan at Sunderland from Man United – make his deal permanent.
Whether Ferguson intends to spend so much on a striker seems doubtful as they have plenty of options up front. Gordon or Henderson would seem the most likely deal but if Gyan’s form remains as it is it may come to pass that United are tempted to make a move given that Owen ‘s days are numbered and Wellbeck would be used as a bartering chip. Real Madrid are also rumoured to be keeping an eye on the BBC African Player of the Year.
