The Premier League team Sheffield United is reportedly considering the acquisition of Andre Ayew, the captain of the Ghana national football team, according to information from Footballghana.com.
The 33-year-old player has been without a club since his release from Nottingham Forest at the end of the previous season.
Ayew had joined Forest after departing from Qatari club Al Sadd but didn’t meet expectations during his 13 appearances.
Manager Steve Cooper decided not to extend his contract, allowing the prolific striker, who has scored 152 goals, to become a free agent.
Footballghana.com has confirmed that Sheffield United has initiated talks to sign the former Olympique Marseille forward.
The team, which has garnered only one point in four matches since its return to the Premier League, is led by manager Paul Heckingbottom.
They secured their single point in a 2-2 draw against Everton in their last outing.
Despite their efforts, Sheffield United appears to lack the necessary quality and experience required to thrive in the Premier League.
Consequently, they are considering offering the veteran striker a short-term contract to assess if he can contribute to their bid for Premier League survival at Bramall Lane.
Andre Ayew, who boasts 114 caps for the Ghanaian national team, has extensive experience in the Premier League from his previous stints with Swansea City and West Ham United.
Being a free agent, Ayew is not bound by transfer window restrictions, and clubs from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Major League Soccer (MLS) are also vying for the signature of the U-20 World Cup winner.
