Fulham and Leicester City at the front of the queue for Swansea striker

Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew appears to be following his brother out of the exit door at the Liberty Stadium after the clubs relegation to the Championship.

According to WalesOnline, Fulham and Leicester City are leading the race to sign the forward as both clubs look to strengthen their squads before the close of the transfer window.

The 26 year old joined the Welsh side from Aston Villa in 2017 for a fee of £5m plus Neil Taylor.

During his time at the club, Ayew has made 50 league appearances for the Swans, registering 8 goals in the Premier League.

Despite not being prolific in front of goal, his work rate and overall contribution to the team are big pulling factors for the Ghanaian.

He also made 51 appearances for Aston Villa during his time in the Midlands, scoring 9 goals for the Villains.

He spent half a season in the Championship with Villa, before moving to Swansea in the January transfer window of 2017.

However, Ayew now looks set to depart Graham Potters side in favour of a move back to the Premier League, with Leicester and Fulham both vying for his signature.

He has made 46 appearances for Ghana, scoring on 12 occasions for his country.

It is likely that a prolonged stay in the Premier League will increase his chances of being picked for further Ghana call ups.

Fulham will be looking to secure their status in the top flight next season after winning the Playoffs, and Ayew is a man who carries a wealth of Premier League experience.

Leicester have money to spend this summer after the sale of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City, and the Swansea striker could be next through the door at the King Power Stadium.

It appears that Ayew’s future in Wales is over and a tug of war between Leicester and Fulham for his services is about to commence.
