Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton are to battle it out in pursuit of Marseille winger Andre Ayew.
The 24 year old French born Ghana international has rejected the latest contract offer from his Ligue 1 employers and can leave the Stade Velodrome next summer on a free transfer deal, leading to a great deal of interest in his services.
Swansea City, Hull City and West Ham are all keeping tabs on Ayew though moves to either Liverpool or Everton may prove more attractive to the Marseille speedster.
Ayew has demanded £50,000 a week from the club he has represented since the age of 16 but Marseille have refused to break their wage structure to accommodate the attacker.
Marseille sit seven points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after an encouraging start under new boss Marcelo Bielsa.
