EXCLUSIVE: Al Ain will reject West Ham offer to sign striker Asamoah Gyan

Asamoah Gyan has been at his prolific best in the UAE

Giants Al Ain will reject the offer West Ham’s offer to sign Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan from the UAE side on loan until the end of the English Premier League season, insiders have told GHANAsoccernet.com exclusively.

Sources within Al Ain have told Ghana’s leading football news outfit that they will reject the offer to sign the prolific striker as they intend to keep their exciting attacker for years to come.

West Ham United contacted Al Ain this week about the possibility of taking Gyan on loan for the remainder of the season.

The London side, currently 17th in England’s top division, sent correspondence to the UAE champions requesting the Ghanaian’s services as they attempt to stave off relegation.

However, Al Ain would be loath to lose Gyan, given the striker has been the country’s most prolific forward since he arrived in June 2012 on loan from Sunderland, another team in the English top flight.

In his first season with Al Ain, Gyan scored 22 league goals to earn the Golden Boot, a contribution that last summer convinced Al Ain to offer him a four-year deal.

Having signed the contract, Gyan continued to find the back of the net at an unrivalled rate; he finished 2012/13 with 31 goals, becoming the first player to reach the 30-goal mark in a single UAE season. With it, Gyan sealed another Golden Boot and a second successive UAE championship.

At Al Ain, Gyan is believed to earn €3 million per year which means he will lose about €1.5 million per year if he agrees to move to England to play for West Ham.

He will pay 50% of his wages in taxes if he agrees to return to England while in the UAE his wages are not taxed.

Gyan, who turned 28 last month, has been prolific again this season, with 14 goals in 11 league rounds. However, Al Ain are off to a modest start this season, and are sixth in the league.

A switch to the Premier League might seem an attractive option for Gyan, who would be keen to sharpen his skills in one of the world’s top leagues in anticipation of Ghana’s 2014 World Cup campaign in Brazil.

As captain of his national team, he will be expected to lead the west Africans through a difficult group comprising Germany, USA and Portugal.

  4. Draman Appiah says:

    But he can’t score a crucial penalty against Uruguay or Zambia. He’s not that prolific but just below average. His juju seems to expire when playing against a strong christian country. He won’t score any goal against Portugal, Germany or USA.

  5. banger says:

    HE MIGHT NOT BE A PROLIFIC STIKER BUT I BET HE CAN SCORE A FAT ONE BETWEEN YOUR MOTHERS THIGHS U BABOON.

  6. Jesse says:

    I think Gyan should have ambitions and to compete with the best and the elite footballers in the game.That said,i think the best players there is are in the Spanish league and so he should ignore this offer from West Ham and their overated English league where you will be taxed and taxed till there is nothing left for you to bring home and rather patiently wait for offers in Europe aside England like Spain.England should not be an option at at all.
    Gyan is playing well and has nothing to prove to anybody.Top scorer at world cup qualifies and also doing well with his team.Enjoy your game Gyan.
