Andre Ayew has been one of the most exciting Premier League attackers during the first four games, scoring key goals while also proving to be a creative force that can manufacture chances for his team-mates.
His biggest showcase was during Swansea's 2-1 win over Manchester United last weekend, when the Ghanaian headed home before teeing up Bafetimbi Gomis with a sumptuous assist.
The day before that game, Liverpool were beaten 3-0 at home by West Ham but according to The Sun, the Reds could have gotten Ayew at a massive discount prior to him joining Swansea.
Ayew was a childhood Liverpool fan and he was so desperate to join the club after letting his contract with Marseille expire last summer that he was willing to play for Brendan Rodgers' side for free until January. According to the paper, the Liverpool transfer committee passed on Ayew and he joined Swansea.
Liverpool fans will hope that the alleged decision to pass on Ayew doesn't come back to bite them this season.
