Swansea City are still hopeful of signing former forward Andre Ayew from West Ham.

The Swans had a bid of around £14m rejected for the Ghana international earlier this month.

Swansea may need to break their £15.5m transfer record, paid to Atletico Madrid for Borja Baston in 2016, to re-sign the 28-year-old.

Ayew left in 2016, with West Ham paying £20m for a player who scored 15 goals in his debut Premier League season.

It is understood Ayew is keen to return Swansea, where his brother Jordan also plays.

However, the Swans’ interest in Atletico Madrid winger Nicolas Gaitan is believed to be waning.

Manager Carlos Carvalhal says the club will “fight until the last minute,” to sign players ahead of Wednesday’s deadline.
