Manchester United allegedly wants Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus.
Liverpool beat Manchester United to Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven.
Erik ten Hag’s side is targeting Kudus.
Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur says Manchester United approached Ajax about Kudus.
The 22-year-old Ghanaian is a talented attacking midfielder.
He has 21 appearances, 10 goals, and 2 assists.Kudus was praised for his work with Ghana at the 2022 World Cup despite their early exit. Three games, two goals.
Ghanaian attacking midfielder ranked in top 1% of top five European leagues for pass completion and dribbles.
He’s top 10 in non-penalty goals, shots on goal, touches, and progressive passes.
United have signed Ten Hag, Lisandro Martinez, and Antony from Ajax.
Kudus is valued at €22 million by Transfermarkt, but that price could grow considering Ajax’s negotiations with United.
According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Kudus was close to joining Everton before Antony arrived at Old Trafford.
Kudus idolises Thiago Alcantara. Kudus is linked to Manchester United, although he likes Liverpool’s Thiago.
He once praised the Spaniard’s style and ingenuity.
“As a kid, I liked his playing style. I’m creative. A friend gave me a shirt in Denmark. Wow! I’m proud of the shirt at home.
Kudus praises Thiago’s defence, saying:
“He often plays as a number six, but he never loses his originality. Wherever he plays, he balances defence and offence. So do I.”
Thiago joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich for £27.3 million in 2020 and has become a hit.
He has 85 appearances, three goals, and five assists.
