Both the 22-year-old has been linked with a January move to Upton Park, as has his brother and team-mate Jordan. That is in spite of the fact the Ghanaian duo are set to represent their country at the African Cup of Nations, which kicks off in South Africa in January.

"We are always interested playing one day abroad", Ayew told Sky Sports. "There is no official offer from West Ham but if such a possibility could arrive, we will talk about with our advisers. West Ham is an excellent team."

West Ham have already recruited a player from Marseille this year, signing France midfielder Alou Diarra in the summer following their promotion back up to the Premier League via the play-offs.
