Swansea City are reportedly considering a move to bring back former striker Andre Ayew from West Ham United.

The 27-year-old joined the Hammers for a club record fee of £20.5 million back in August 2016 from the Swans.

However, after re-signing Wilfried Bony in the summer, Swansea are currently in the business of buying back strikers, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

Nixon claims Swansea are considering a move for the Ghanaian, whose brother, Jordan Ayew, is still playing at the Liberty Stadium.

Andre Ayew has scored five in 16 for the Hammers this season, following on from the six in 28 games he netted last term.

West Ham will reportedly allow Ayew to depart for half the price they paid if they cash in this winter, with David Moyes evidently not liking what he has seen.

Moyes took over just last month following the sacking of Slaven Bilic and with the hammers dangerously placed in 19th, just a point above the Swans, they feel strengthening is needed.

West Ham may be unlikely to sell to a relegation rival, but David Moyes also wants to put his own stamp on the squad, and he needs the funds to make that happen.

Ayew will be lured to Swansea with his past connections as well as the opportunity to play with his brother and Paul Clement could offer West Ham United a quick deal.
