Brendan Rodgers reportedly wanted Andre Ayew at Celtic, and now he is a free agent... and a no-brainer - TBR View

Whoever takes over at Celtic has an enormous job to do. The Hoops need additions all over the pitch. It is going to be a massive transition period for the Hoops, with even changes going on upstairs. Now, the perfect signing has emerged as a free agent, a player Brendan Rodgers reportedly wanted at Celtic – in Andre Ayew.

Celtic need a goalkeeper. They need a right-back, if Jonjoe Kenny does not stay. They need a centre-back, and possibly two with Shane Duffy departing. Diego Laxalt is to return to Milan, so a left-back is needed. Scott Brown is departing, Odsonne Edouard is also set to go. Plenty have got to be signed.

They need new additions all over the park. So, bringing in top-quality players for small fees is crucial – and even better, players that are versatile. Well, a player that Rodgers reportedly wanted at Celtic in 2018, has just been released by a club down south, in the form of Swansea City.

Indeed, the Welsh side have waved goodbye to their top scorer Andre Ayew. The 31-year-old Ghana legend scored 16 Championship goals during the last season. But because of his big wages, and failure to gain promotion, Ayew has departed on a free – and is looking for a new home.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

Rodgers wanted Ayew at Celtic, now he is a no-brainer

Football Ghana claimed in 2018 that Ayew was a target for Celtic – with Rodgers looking to raid his old club Swansea for the ex-Hammers man. A move never materialised, but surely now, if Celtic were to consider a move for Ayew, they would get him? On a free, he is the perfect Celtic signing.

Able to play on either flank, up front or in the 10 role – Ayew gives versatility when it is seriously needed. It also saves Celtic from spending their limited cash reserves. Ayew is the perfect summer signing for Celtic, and the Hoops have got to be on red alert over a potential addition.
