Why have Swansea signed him? 

Swansea were seriously in need of a forward as the 2015/16 season approached with, at one point, only three listed on their official website. Even now they do not have a huge choice, but the addition of Ayew has certainly made matters easier, as can be seen by the fact he has started every one of their league games so far. The Ghanaian adds an element of strength to the squad and, if possible, will become even more important than he has been already should Bafetimbi Gomis get injured during the season. All-in-all the Ghana star seems like a brilliant signing, even more so due to the fact he didn’t cost a penny!

Will he be a good capture? 

Judging by his start to the season, Ayew could turn out to be one of the signings of the summer. He has opened his account by bagging three goals in his first four games and has put in a Man of the Match display against Manchester United. When looking at his previous goalscoring record, it is yet another indication that the 25-year-old will flourish for the Welsh side. He scored 44 times for Marseille, as well as bagging a string of assists, and is in double figures for his national team. The stats say it all and the 25-year-old is definitely one to look out for, not just this season, but also in the coming years.
