Kudus Transfer? It’s All Change Again.

West Ham United could face a fight to retain our star man Mohammed Kudus this summer, according to Caught Offside.

This conflicts with yesterdays suggestion that the Ghanaian is a happy Hammer and looking forward to another season in East London. Therefore, it’s probably best to take the most recent update with a bucket of salt.

The report claims that four major clubs – Liverpool, Manchester City, Al-Nassr, and Al-Ahli – are all keeping tabs on the 23-year-old Ghanaian forward. These clubs, backed by significant financial resources, are expected to submit bids for Kudus in the coming weeks.

West Ham might struggle to compete with the financial muscle of these potential suitors. The hefty transfer fees and lucrative wages offered by these clubs could prove too tempting for the Hammers to match.

While Kudus does have a release clause in his contract, it may not deter all clubs. This clause creates uncertainty for West Ham, who may be powerless to prevent his departure if the player desires a move.

The Hammers need a two-pronged approach to keep Kudus. First, they must convince him of their long-term project and future ambition to secure his loyalty. Second, they might need to offer him a new contract with improved terms to make West Ham a more attractive proposition compared to the potential offers he might receive.

Ultimately, the choice lies with Kudus. The lure of playing for a Champions League contender or a team in a different league, potentially with higher wages, could influence his decision. West Ham must act swiftly and decisively to convince him that his future remains bright at the London Stadium.

    Lazy Journalism, release clause doesn’t come into effect until next summer.
    Kudos has already stated he is ere for next season.

    This site has turned into absolute xxxxxxx, why don’t you just report on the truth instead of making xxxx up every hour for clicks

  • Know nothing says:

    A release clause can’t be activated until after the 3rd transfer window from when the player was signed. Meaning Kudus’s release clause can’t be activated until summer 2025. But being an ITK journalist you already knew that! 😄😄

    “West Ham might struggle to compete with the financial muscle of these potential suitors. The hefty transfer fees and lucrative wages offered by these clubs could prove too tempting for the Hammers to match.”

    What the hell does that even mean? So West Ham will be tempted to match the transfer fees clubs may offer them to buy their own player? They going to get into a bidding war with other clubs to try sign their own player?

    He’s on a 5 year contract with 4 years remaining and the £85m release clause doesn’t trigger until next summer. So if clubs want him now they’ll likely have to offer significantly higher than that and if they’re willing to pay more now they’ll likely be happy to get him “cheap” next summer if West Ham reject.

    So it’s not all change now. Utter nonsense article. Again.

    Has there ever been a club like whufc in the history of football. They constantly has the media and worse still the owners that plead poverty at every opportunity. xxxxx clearly cannot afford to run the club . Yet little or no pressure is being applied on him to sell up for the good of the club and it’s supporters.

  • mark wiggins says:

    Why would we even sanction a move , we’re supposed to strengthen our team not weaken it always pleading poverty , more like Sullivan being tight we should not sell Kudus !

    You can see now the effects of PSR on football, it reinforces the status quo hierarchy and the biggest clubs will benefit at the cost of everyone lower down in the chain, this is what FIFA/UEFA/FA EPL want a fixed market. It’s why I gave up my season ticket last year, football might as well be like wrestling, a fake spectacle with results fixed in advance. Players will in most cases ultimately go to who pays the most and can offer them trophies, as they are only spread among a very small number of teams and by constraining the finances through enforced rules that only affect the smaller clubs, (didn’t see Man City or Chelsea docked points) it becomes impossible for other groups with money to do what happened at Man City and force the established brands out. At some point Man Utd will return they benefit by on average 25 goals a season from dodgy var calls as do the others teams make a net gain every season while those threatening their dominance with the exception of an odd season here and there which can be used as evidence it’s not fixed, not Leicester in the season they won the league were given the allowance of the +25 goals that shouldn’t have stood and equal only to Man Utd that season who should have been in a relegation fight but somehow ended up finishing 5th with a +14 gd that should have been -11. Everything about football is corrupt, the model that means every team has to sell it’s best players to the biggest clubs because there isn’t a realistic chance they can win trophies, that football isn’t about coaching and player development but more about money and status, the way clubs screw their fans (look at our relationship this year and so many other clubs with regards to concession tickets) just to pay inflated wages to players that have more than enough money already… what’s the point in arguing that we should even try to hold onto our players or expect them to stay.

    The sooner the house of cards collapses the better, more fans I talk to are moving towards the decision to stopp supporting this busted flush of a model, the only way to affect change is through action, make the grounds like Saudia Arabia no fans, no passion and soulless it’s what these club owners and league owners deserve.

      Just remember that these headlines are designed to generate advertising incomes and factual news is not the point….but it works.
