Burnley Opinion: The Clarets should make a move for Andre Ayew

Following a fairytale run in the Premier League last season which saw them finish 7th and secure a return to the European stage after a 51-year long absence, Burnley looked down and out in the opening stages of the current campaign.

Their poor form in the earlier stages of the Premier League this season was largely due to the distraction caused by their European adventures. However, with the dark clouds of relegation looming at Turf Moor, Sean Dyche has been able to inspire a turnaround of fortunes.

Much of Burnley’s recent success has been down to the heroics of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood, whilst youngster Dwight McNeil has also made a positive impact in his debut season.

Ashley Westwood has also chipped in with some valuable assists from central midfield but Burnley should look to add a little more quality to their midfield options.

To put things into perspective, Burnley should look to raid Swansea City for their Ghanaian midfielder Andre Ayew.

The 29-year-old has spent time on loan at Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig this season and it looks highly unlikely that a player of his calibre is going to stick around for much longer in the Championship.

Known as a versatile midfielder who is comfortable playing in attacking, defensive and central roles in the midfield, Ayew is also a good winger who can play on either flank. He is someone who excels with his tireless running and is equally adept at closing down the opposition. He can also contribute defensively and win the ball back for his team.

Ayew is a fast, sharp and agile player who has a lot of quality and trickery on the ball and he is more than capable of creating chances with his creativity, vision and deliveries from crosses. The 29-year-old also has a penchant for scoring goals and chipping in with some valuable assists.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson has been one of the standout performers for Sean Dyche’s side but someone like Ayew can add that cutting edge to their attack, whilst also bolstering squad depth and increasing competition for places in the midfield.
