English Premier League side Arsenal, have joined a good number of European club’s willing to sign Ghana’s World Cup star Mohammed Kudus.
According to 90min, the Gunners are leading the charge to sign the in-form Ajax midfielder.
The Ajax star has a growing reputation in the game after a starring role at the 2022 World Cup. He netted twice in his country’s 3-2 win over South Korea earlier this week, highlighting his growing confidence.
Indeed, the 22-year-old has four goals and two assists from six Champions League appearances this season. One of those – a thunderbolt in front of Liverpool’s Kop – has led to speculation the Merseysiders are also keen.
Our outfit last week, reported that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is dreaming of landing the rising Ghanaian star. He is also reportedly on Tottenham’s radar, while Everton came close to landing him over the summer.
However, the first move for Kudus’ services has seemingly arrived from Arsenal.
At this stage, no talks have taken place over his prospective transfer. However, they hope to have put themselves in the driving seat by becoming the first side to register an interest.
Ajax, though, are in no hurry to sell. Demand for Kudus is already high and that fee is already likely to be around £40m. However, should Ghana go deep into the tournament, Kudus’ profile will only rise and his valuation climb with it.
So far, the 22-year old promising midfielder, has scored two goals, and provided one assist for Ghana at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
He won the Man of the Match award in his country’s 3:2 over South Korea in their second Group H game.
