Liverpool have already been catapulted into contention for being subject to the strangest transfer rumour of the summer.
A busy window awaits the club as Jurgen Klopp seeks to bolster his strength in depth ahead of a potentially defining season in his Anfield tenure.
Lyon’s Nabil Fekir boasts a place as the trending name on Liverpool’s media-fabricated wish-list, although reports have surfaced a new and undoubtedly shock name to contend with.
Swansea City’s Jordan Ayew has supposedly attracted unlikely interest from the Reds as well as Scottish giants Celtic.
Nana Oduro Sarfo, who is close to Ayew’s family and director of Ghanaian side Bekerum Chelsea, told Onua FM: “Jordan has had offers from several clubs after Swansea City’s relegation last season. He will surely not play in the Championship with them.”
“Liverpool has shown interest in him but Scottish side Celtic and their coach seem to be serious with their interest. I believe he may go to Scotland looking at how events are unfolding since they want to meet every demand.”
Ayew was comfortably Swansea’s star performer in a turbulent season for the relegated side, but is arguably far from the standard required to strengthen Liverpool’s attacking options.
The club’s mini injury crisis over the concluding stages of the season has ultimately stressed the need for summer reinforcements if Klopp’s side hope to realistically challenge for the Premier League title in 2018/2019.
Besides filling the void set to be left by Juventus-bound Emre Can and finding a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool may also sought to find a viable backup for Roberto Firmino.
It seems safe to say that probably won’t mean Ayew.
