Marseille's Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew said on Wednesday he would relish the prospect of playing in the Premier League but insisted that West Ham United had not tabled any offer to sign him.

The 22-year-old, who plays for Marseille, shined in the Ligue 1 after producing a string of superb performances, catching the eyes of several clubs, including West Ham according to English reports.

 He also hinted that his brother Jordan Ayew, who is also linked to West Ham, is prepared to consider moving to the Hammers if they are interested in acquiring his services.

"We are very interested in playing abroad one day in our career," Andre Ayew was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Wednesday.

"There is no official bid from West Ham and if there is a possibility of one arriving, we will speak to our advisors. West Ham are an excellent team."

 West Ham lie seventh in the Premier League table with 19 points from 12 matches.
