The Lowdown: Liverpool scouts in attendance…
It was reported earlier this week that the Anfield outfit had sent scouts to watch Kudus in action for Ghana in their 3-2 loss at the hands of Portugal.
Jurgen Klopp has been ‘keeping an eye’ on the attacking midfielder since September, when he scored for Ajax in a 2-1 defeat at Anfield in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
FSG ‘hope’ to sign Kudus in the January transfer window, but his stock may rise during the World Cup.
The Latest: Kudus impresses
Kudus got a lovely assist for Andre Ayew’s goal to equalise for Ghana in the second half of the game, prompting the media to sing his praises.
The Verdict: Sign him up
Kudus’ stock is only going to rise during the World Cup, after an impressive start to the season which has seen him score 10 goals and make a further two assists in 21 games in total over all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).
Aside from his assist for Ghana, he was mightily impressive again, winning a joint team-high six of his individual duels, while he also recorded two shots on target and completed all four of his dribbles (SofaScore).
With the Reds lingering outside of the Champions League places this time in the Premier League, Kudus could make the difference in getting them higher up the table come the second part of the campaign.
