One To Watch – Andre Ayew

Andre Ayew has played 20 times for Marseille this season

Andre Ayew has been on a meteoric rise since the 2009 Under 20 World Cup.

A top performer for Ghana at the summer’s World Cup and now a first-team regular at Marseille, the sky is the limit for the 21-year old.

Ayew captained his country to the African Youth Championship and the Under 20 World Cup in 2009. The left-footer scored twice against England in a 4-0 victory in the Under 20 World Cup.

Since then, Marseille have been reaping the rewards from Andre Ayew’s amazing talents.

He spent the 2009-2010 season on-loan at Arles-Avignon where he played 25 times. His good form not only earnt him a call-up to Ghana’s World Cup squad, but also a place in the Marseille dressing room.

Didier Deschamps recognized Ayew as one for the future and Ayew signed a four year contract extension which will last him until June 2014.

The Ghanian has made 20 appearances for Marseille this season and netted four goals. These include 6 European appearances, the highest stage of club football.

Football is second nature to Andre and his family as brothers Ibrahim and Jordan both play professionally as well. Jordan also plays for Marseille and seems to be just as an exciting footballing prospect. Meanwhile, Ibrahim has recently joined Lierse S.K. in Belguim from Egyptian outfit Zaemelek.

Ayew’s trophy cabinet is already bursting at the seems as he has collected many international trophies. As well as the African Youth Championship and Under 20 World Cup in 2009, Ayew has earnt a bronze medal in the 2008 African Cup of Nations and a silver medal in the most recent 2010 tournament.

Andre Ayew is mostly known throughout France and Germany but has started attracting attention from a whole host of clubs across Europe. Arsenal have been keeping tabs on the youngster, but then again, Arsenal will keep tabs on anyone with a bit of potential!
