The former Olympique Marseille player joined West Ham as the club’s record transfer fee from Premier League rivals Swansea City.

Coincidentally, Ayew’s debut for Swansea City in the Premier League was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge where he scored in the 2-2 draw.

The Ghanaian player ended his first season at Swansea City as the club’s top scorer with 12 goals.
