There has been speculation surrounding Ayew throughout the summer with the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland and Chelsea said to hold an interest.

Serie A side Napoli have also been linked with the Ghanaian but tabloid reports claim West Ham are now the frontrunners and are confident of securing the forward in a £16m deal.

However, Swansea are under no pressure to sell as Ayew is under contract until 2019 and if it does become clear the former Marseille man is actively seeking a move away from the Liberty Stadium, the Welsh club will want a replacement lined up.

If Ayew does move on, manager Francesco Guidolin will be left with just 20-year-old Oliver McBurnie, who is yet to make a Premier League appearance, and Bafetimbi Gomis as his striking options.

Gomis is seemingly set to join Marseille on loan and, as such, it seems unlikely Swansea will be prepared to allow Ayew to depart until they have at least one new attacker on board themselves.
