Ghana’s star player Kudus Mohammed says he was close to joining Everton FC in the English Premier League from AFC Ajax Amsterdam last summer.
The in-form Ghana International says he believed Frank Lampard’s project was good for him after talking to the Everton manager on a possible transfer.
According to Kudus he was desperate to leave because he wanted more play time, which he wasn’t getting at the start of the season.
“I was really close to joining Everton,” he said on Joy Prime.
“I thought it was a good project for me and I felt I should try it. It wasn’t like this season was my first, it was my third. So if I’m not getting the progress I’m looking for then why not try something else? That was the focus of everything that happened.”
“I spoke to Lampard [regarding a move to Everton]. I had a chat with him to know the project they have for me, what he thinks about me and how he sees me as a player because definitely that would be the green light for me to decide whether I want to move. Without the coach there is nothing.”
