Jordan Ayew TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp may have claimed Liverpool’s transfer business is finished, but the Reds continue to be linked with players.

The latest man to be mentioned as a target for Klopp is Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew, 27, despite Klopp’s admission last night that his summer business was done.

The Swans are looking to sell Ayew and his brother Andre as they look to offload some big earners as they prepare for life in the Championship

Football Ghana claims “Liverpool and Celtic have expressed their interest in signing Jordan Ayew” and they report Beskitas and Newcastle are in the hunt to sign Andre Ayew.

Per the source, Swansea are hoping to raise around £12m from the sales of both brothers.

Swansea apparently rejected a bid of £8million from Fulham for Jordan earlier this summer, so they will be looking for a fee of around £10million, while a loan, with a fee attached, looks more likely for Ayew senior.

Whether or not Klopp had Ayew listed as a target before the arrival of Xherdan Shaqiri or whether the Ghana forward remains on his hit list is unclear.

Jordan Ayew scored 11 goals in 44 appearances for the Swans last season.
