Liverpool and Newcastle United target Andre Ayew has reportedly decided on a summer move to AS Roma.

The Ghana international will see his current contract expire in June, allowing him to discuss terms with a new club.

Liverpool have held a long term interest in the Marseille attacker, whilst North London rivals Arsenal had also been keen through the years.

Newcastle are understood to have made contact in recent weeks and offered the speedy forward a pre-contract offer, whilst Bayer Leverkusen are also said to have done the same.

However, it is now understood that Ayew has decided on a summer move to the Serie A where he is thought to have agreed terms with Roma.

The 25-year-old former African Footballer of the Year has scored four goals and created three in 17 games for the Ligue 1 side this season.
