Hammers signing a “massive bargain”


It seems impossible to keep Mohammed Kudus out of the headlines right now!

His arrival at the Hammers from Ajax is creating huge excitement and his superb free kick goal against the Central African Republic last night only served to heap up the hype on him ahead of our match against Manchester City.

And according to CIES  signing the guy for just £40 million was a massive bargain who claim he is in fact worth more than €60m (£50m) in real terms.

They see him as West Ham’s most valuable player at the moment, and for that we can thank Tim Steidten who persuaded the attacking midfielder that we were the club for him whilst many other top clubs were making moves on the 23 year old.

Kudus still has it all to prove in the Premier League but everything indicates that he is – to put it in Hammers terms – going to become massive.
