Swansea City are close to re-signing Andre Ayew from West Ham United, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

West Ham signed Andre Ayew from Swansea in summer 2016 in what was then a club record deal.

But the Ghana international could be about to return to the Liberty Stadium after a hot and cold stay in East London.

Ayew has scored three goals in 18 games this season and has been sparingly used by David Moyes, suggesting his future might be away from West Ham.

A return to Swansea would interest the South Wales outfit, who got twelve goals out of him in his solitary season with the club.

The former Marseille winger has shown glimpses of his talent at West Ham, including an impressive brace in this season’s EFL Cup victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Trailing 2-0 at half time, Ayew led the charge to spark a remarkable turnaround victory with West Ham triumphing 3-2 in the end.

But the 28-year-old could move back to Swansea and join his brother Jordan Ayew ahead of their relegation battle.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side are bottom of the Premier League and are desperately seeking attacking reinforcements this month.

Meanwhile, West Ham are said to be willing to listen to offers for Ayew or any of their three central strikers: Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez and Diafra Sakho.
