Sunderland are currently facing a fight for survival but that does not mean they should not already be preparing for life in the Premier League next season and starting to consider their transfer options.
The club will need to improve as a whole if they are to get away from a relegation fight once again next term and a potentially good option would be a double swoop for Premier League brothers.
Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew both arrived in the Premier League last summer at Aston Villa and Swansea City respectively.
The Ghanaian duo, sons of legendary Marseille forward Abedi Pele, have impressed in the Premier League at times – despite the struggles of their respective clubs.
Jordan is unlikely to want to play Championship football with Villa whilst a report from Wales Online this week suggested that Swansea are willing to sell Andre in the summer – a player who was linked with Sunderland during the January transfer window.
