Newcastle United have expressed their interest in signing Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew from Swansea City.
Jordan was Swansea’s top goalscorer last season with seven goals in the league- 11 in all competitions, as well as one of their top performers.
However, newly promoted side to Premier League, Fulham have made an initial £8million bid for the Ghanaian rejected will now have to battle it out with the Magpies who are closing in on the £13m rated forward.
While Fulham want the Ghana international to forefront their bid to remain in the Premier League come May 2019, Newcastle need more firepower up front and Ayew's versatility makes him the best signing.
Swansea paid Aston Villa around £5m plus Neil Taylor for the Ghanaian in January 2017 and expect to lose him following relegation.
