The Hammers are in the process of drawing up a list of possible targets for the January transfer window.

Ayew is believed to be in Sam Allardyce's thoughts, with the 22-year-old having already shown what he is capable of on the grandest of stages.

The Ghana international has already made well over 150 senior appearances in his career and was among those to catch the eye as the Black Stars reached the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.

A switch to England has been touted for some time, and Ayew has now revealed that a transfer door could be opened if a bid is received and Marseille are prepared to listen.

He has also hinted that his younger brother Jordan, who has also been linked with West Ham, could join him in heading for the exits at Stade Velodrome.

"We are very interested in playing abroad one day in our career," said Ayew.

"There is no official bid from West Ham and if there is a possibility of one arriving, we will speak to our advisors.

"West Ham are an excellent team."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
