Andre Ayew is a Ghana international who plays club football on the wing for Swansea City. Born on 17th December 1989, Ayew was on the books of 1860 Munchen during his youth, where his father, three-time African Footballer of the Year Abedi Pele, played. But following a brief spell at Ghanaian club Nania, his professional breakthrough arrived in France with Marseille. He made his debut for the Ligue 1 club in August 2007 and his impressive performances attracted the attention of Arsenal. However, Ayew would stay in Marseille and subsequently be loaned out to Lorient and Arles-Avignon during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons respectively. Upon his return Ayew would flourish under Didier Deschamps and, would be named Ligue 1 Young Player of the Season after scoring 11 goals from 37 appearances. Swansea City swooped for the Ghanaian in a free transfer in June 2015, bringing an end to a Marseille career that brought 60 goals from 208 appearances. He made an immediate impact in south Wales, scoring against Newcastle United, Chelsea and Manchester United in August. Ayew would only spend one year at Swansea, however, as West Ham parted with £20.5millon for the attaccker in the summer of 2016 to help kickstart their new era at the London Stadium. Ayew has 72 caps for Ghana and has appeared in two World Cups.
