Transfer News: Marseille accept Ayew departure
Marseille president Vincent Labrune has accepted the club will lose the services of Andre Ayew this summer to a wealthier outfit.
Ayew's contract will expire at the end of the season, with Premier League pair Arsenal and Liverpool reportedly tracking the Ghanaian winger.
Labrune told The Independent : "We can't keep Ayew. He is a very important player for OM but we can't offer him the kind of money English clubs can offer. The French financial system is complicated and we can't offer him an equivalent salary to what he can earn in England.
“And equally, we can't ask Ayew, who we love and is an icon of our team, to accept a lower salary. That makes no sense so unfortunately he is going to quit the club and we hope he has the great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.”
