Celtic fans have been reacting to claims that the club could be set to chase Andre Ayew in this upcoming transfer window.

A report from Ghana claims that the Bhoys could make a move for Ayew following the expiration of his contract at English Championship side Swansea City, making him a free agent and up for grabs by anyone this summer.

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

The 31-year-old has just come off the back of a disappointing season at the Liberty Stadium, with the falling at the final hurdle and losing to Brentford in the play-off final, but the Ghanaian managed to put up some decent figures for himself along the way, racking up 17 goals and 4 assists in all competitions.

Numbers that you might think would appeal to Celtic fans as they look to claw back the title from Rangers next season, but when the news was relayed to them by @Record_Sport on Twitter, there didn’t seem to be much enthusiasm about the idea, with some citing potential wage demands as an issue:

“Surely this isn’t the level we’re at now”

“I wish. No way we can afford his wages V what he will be offered else where. He’ll end up in Turkey.”
“Downgrading again”
“Ayew kidding?”
“Derk Borreigter v2”
“This the same guy who wanted 80k a week at Swansea, dont see him coming to Celtic at around 20k a week.”
“He’s on £80k per week at Swansea, so that’s a non story”

Would you like to see Ayew sign for Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given where Celtic were after last season, fans can’t exactly be picky when it comes to who they sign, and if they can get a deal for Ayew done, then they shouldn’t be turning their noses up.
