The Celtic fans are once more optimistic for the season ahead under Brendan Rodgers after the former Liverpool boss has done so well ever since arriving at Celtic Park.
Having completed the double treble in the past two seasons, Brendan Rodgers will be keen to improve his squad further so that and European success can both be possible ahead of the new campaign. Celtic have already completed the permanent signing of Odsonne Edouard but having lost vital attacker Stuart Armstrong, they need to improve their forward options further, maybe with the capture of Swansea’s Andre Ayew.
The want-away Ghanian re-joined Swansea from West Ham in January but after failing to score or keep the Swans in the Premier League, Ayew may look for an alternative adventure instead. The 28-year-old began life in the Premier League as a clinical finisher but when moving to the Hammers, 12 goals from his debut season dropped dramatically down to 6 as he struggled for game-time.
However, Ayew is a hard-working forward that can play on either wing, down the middle supporting the striker or being the main striker. His versatility to play in an array of positions has helped him become a useful player in the Premier League and someone that would be a real statement of intent should Celtic pursue him.
The 28-year-old has been captain of Swansea and Ghana at times, showing not only can he score goals but he likes to lead his team and set an example to fellow colleagues. It would be a tough ask for Celtic to sign him but if they did, it would be an almighty statement of intent as they intend to make movements in Europe.
