Leeds United are thought to be ‘interested’ in a late move for Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus, but face competition from the likes of Newcastle United and Everton.
The Lowdown: Kudus profiled
Kudus is primarily a central midfielder but can also play as an attacking midfielder or even as a centre-forward.
The Latest: Leeds links
According to Ghanasoccernet on Twitter, the leading publication for news on Ghanian players, Leeds are one of four English sides ‘interested’ in Kudus, alongside Newcastle, Tottenham and indeed Everton.
They claim in the last 48 hours that ‘no official offers are on the table’, but one of the four sides are asking ‘for a character reference from his former club FC Nordsjaelland’.
The Verdict: Could fit in…
Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta have gone after players this summer who can play in a number of areas, so Kudus would fit in well at Elland Road due to his versatility.
Kudus at Elland Road?
Yes, just what we need!
No, look elsewhere!
He’d be able to play as a number eight, number ten or even as a centre-forward and is still just 22 years of age, so you’d expect will improve in years to come.
Kudus is also valued at £9m by Transfermarkt, so a transfer appears to be in Leeds’ price range, meaning that this could be one to keep an eye on in the final days of the window.
