Andre Ayew scored 12 league goals in 34 games for Swansea in 2015-16

Swansea City are willing to allow striker Andre Ayew to join West Ham United – as long as the Welsh club can bring in another forward first.

The Hammers are understood to have already made an offer for the 26-year-old Ghanaian international.

Swansea signed Spain striker and World Cup winner Fernando Llorente from Sevilla on Friday.

Francesco Guidolin’s side are also interested in signing Atletico Madrid striker Borja Baston.

The club have enquired about Premier League champions Leicester City’s Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa too.

Swansea City forwards Alberto Paloschi, Eder and Bafetimbi Gomis have already departed the Liberty Stadium this summer.

Manager Francesco Guidolin admitted in July he was unsure about Ayew’s future, but hoped he would stay.

Ayew was Swansea’s top scorer with 12 goals last season after joining from Marseille on a free transfer in June 2015.

West Ham United have signed striker Ashley Fletcher,midfielder Havard Nordtveit, and wingers Sofiane Feghouli and Gokhan Tore this summer.
