West Ham had the change to sign Ayew – who has gone onto score 12 goals for Swansea – for free last summer.

However, the report goes onto state that Swansea are keep to hold onto the 26-year-old this season after Bafetimbi Gomis joined Marseille on a season-long loan.

Sweansa boss Francesco Guidolin refused to be drawn on the future on Ayew when asked.

“I don’t want to speak about the transfer market. I can say that for me it is too long and every day I have to answer the same questions,” Guidolin was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

Ayew provided four assists and scored 12 goals for Swansea in all competitions last season. The 26-year-old also has scored 11 goals in 69 international appearances for the Ghana national team.
