West Ham to raid Ajax AGAIN!


West Ham United are set to raid Ajax for the second time this summer, by bidding for Mohammed Kudus. This is according to transfer ‘in the know’ Fabrizio Romano, and has been corroborated by the usual sources.

23 year old Kudus is a Ghanaian international and can play in a variety of positions. Primarily an attacking player, the left footed speedster can operate through the middle or in wide positions. Reports on the approach are conflicting with some suggesting we’ll sign Kudus irrespective of the Lucas Paqueta transfer.

Speaking on his Twitter page, Romano revealed: “West Ham now open initial talks to sign Mohammed Kudus. Priority target in case Lucas Paquetá leaves to join Manchester City. Positive talks on player side, Kudus open to the move — still waiting to approach Ajax as deal will depend on Paquetá.”

West Ham have a good trading relationship with Ajax following the transfer of Edson Alvarez. Brighton and Arsenal are both thought to be interested in Kudus, so hopefully Alvarez signing may give us an edge.

With Lucas Paqueta believed to have agreed personal terms with Manchester City, there may be validity in this rumour. It should be pointed out that whilst Kudus might be viewed as a replacement of Paqueta, they’re dissimilar. The Ghanaian lacks Paqueta’s passing ability but is significantly faster.

I discuss Kudus in a bit more detail in the video below.

    Looks like a really good player that would add pace and strength to the midfield, not sure he is a replacement for Paqueta looks like a genuine number 8

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Saw an interesting article from Fiorentina that the only club too have made any offer Fiorentina find interesting for Sofyan Amrabat is West Ham, there are no offers they are considering and according to that website it is still on the table.

  • Dagenham Hammer says:

    would be good if we got him

  • Buster says:

    This will be a good test for Tim to earn his kudos, should Kudus prove his worth as a potential replacement for Paqueta. Though I’m not convinced that our Brazilian will be leaving for Man City this window.
