Meanwhile, there are reports some of these players are in talks with their clubs over contract extensions.

Jordan Ayew

The Marseille-born Ghanaian attacking joined Crystal Palace from Swansea City in the summer of 2019, after excelling on an initial loan deal to sign a three-year contract with an option to extend for a further.

Crystal Palace has the option to hand the 30-year-old another deal.

Jordan Ayew made 33 appearances, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the English Premier League.

Jeffrey Schlupp

The versatile Ghanaian player had another good campaign with Crystal Palace, playing a key role in Patrick Vieira's first season in South London. Schlupp joined the Eagles in 2017 after winning the English Premier League with Leicester City the previous season.

His five-year deal comes to an end in June and he will be available to join any club of his choice. However, his outstanding displays this season could convince Palace to hand him a new deal.

The German-born Ghanaian made 32 appearances this season, scoring four goals and providing two assists.

Daniel Amartey

Amafrtey had one of his best seasons at the King Power stadium in the just ended campaign after struggles with injuries in the previous seasons. He joined Leicester City in 2016, and was a member of the English Premier League winning side.

He is out of contract at the end of the month, and reports suggests he might be joining Rangers. A decision will be made soon.

This season, he made 28 Premier League appearances.

Eddie Nketiah

The English-born Ghanaian had a fine finish to the campaign, scoring five goals in the last eight games of the campaign. He was on target in the final day thrashing of Everton.

However, his future at Arsenal seems to be in limbo due to a lack of playing time. The forward, who is ready to make an international switch and play for Ghana could be making a club change as soon as possible.
