Marseille  winger Andre Ayew has admitted he is flattered by glowing comments recently made by Arsenal  manager Arsene Wenger.


The 62-year-old remarked last week he was a big fan of Ayew after reports in Europe claimed he was interested in the Ghana international.


However, Wenger also stressed he did not have any plans to sign the 21-year-old as he has enough wingers in the squad already.


And while a move to the Emirates Stadium appears to be improbable in January, Ayew is making the most from Wenger's comments.


"I would be lying if I said I was not flattered by those words," Ayew told RMC.


"Wenger is a great coach who has won titles with a very good club. He has done great things and has helped nurture good players.


"Taking that into consideration, those words please me and make me want to work even harder. They show that hard work pays off.


"I am still every young, I have a lot steps to take."

    Jordan is great. Frimpong was a starter for Arsenal as well today. He played 76 minutes. There was also a certain defender playing for Arsenal called Daniel Boateng. Never heard of him but I assume he's Ghanaian.
