Report: Mawson swap deal may be on cards

MawsonWest Ham’s may have to allow Andre Ayew to return to Swansea if they are determined to clinch a deal for central defender Alfie Mawson.

The Hammers are definitely eyeing the 23 year old with a top insider telling us that whilst it’ very difficult to buy big players at this time of the year they are in the market for him.

We were told: “It’s incredibly difficult but we do like the the player and will be trying.”

However, according to The Mirror Ayew could very easily become part of a deal should it happen as the Swans struggle for goals.

However, he has found life tough at the LS and has struggled to nail down a regular first team place and David Moyes could now be asked if he will let the Ghanaian return to south Wales as part of a Mawson deal.

  1. So West Ham have to sell their record buys from the season before to fund the next season, thanks for the next level Mr Chairman.

  2. It is probably the most likely way a deal would get done but to echo what I already said what is so special about Mawson looks average perhaps slightly above.

  3. Pfff. If you think this Mawson is worth 40 millions, what about players from the European continent ? You can get a couple of good midfielders for that money. And that is what we need, midfielders. Or versatile players who are quicker and can read the game better than this guy.

    • Exactly and even of they do take Ayew they will still want £20-£30m they won’t pay £20m already said so.
      I don’t think Mawson should be a priority In Jan I like him but he is slow & we have CBs. Midfield needs to be priority but Moyes refuses to look outside PL & we can’t afford to pay good PL players.
      A lot of good Midfilders out there but not in PL that we can afford. Moyes has to get over PL experience who we will be waiting till end of Jan to sign fringe players for £20m
