Arsene Wenger: Get me André Ayew
In recent days it has surfaced that 63 year old Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is looking to add to his squad to help push on and secure the Premier League trophy. Arsenal are currently one point ahead of London rivals Chelsea, with 54 points in 25 games. It's believed that Arsene is ready to spend big, with several names being chucked into the mix. One name that has been popping up over the past few weeks is Ghanaian and Marseille winger André Ayew.
Speaking to the press after Arsenal's 1-0 defeat, Wenger spoke of his admiration of the player, even going as far to say how tempted he was to activate the 23 year old £16 million release clause. If the deal were to go ahead, it would most likely see the end to Ryo Miyachi spell at the club, who is said to be unhappy with the lack of playing time.
Miyachi arrived at The Emirates in 2010 on a free transfer. He has yet to play his first professional game for Arsenal, but has since gone on to represent Feyenoord in the Dutch division, making 12 appearances and scoring 3 goals, as well as representing Bolton Wanderers, again making 12 appearances.
Crystal Palace are rumored to be interested in the Japanese winger, however nothing official has been stated.
