Swansea City who have been relegated to the English Championship are only willing to sell Jordan Ayew for a higher price.
The striker is rated highly by the Welsh side after he impressed with his scintillating performances in the just ended English Premier League season.
Despite his side been relegated, Ayew scored 11 goals in all competitions.
His fine form saw him voted Player of the Season at Swansea.
The Cottagers identified the Black Stars attacker as the man to add attacking bite to their team and tabled an initial £8 million with add-ons only for the Swans to coolly reject that offer.
The Welsh giants are quoting figures in excess of £20 million for the coveted players and that any interested party willing to acquire the services of Jordan Ayew must be willing to cough out his buyout clause as well.
Jordan Ayew is also a target for Scottish giants Celtic, it is highly unlikely that Ayew will be with Swansea next season.
