Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly one of the clubs interested in signing Ajax star Mohammed Kudus.
The Lowdown: Previous PL interest in Kudus
The 22-year-old was linked with a move to the Premier League during the previous summer transfer window, only for Everton to have a £15m bid for him rejected by Ajax.
Having stayed at the Dutch club, the midfielder now finds himself in Qatar representing Ghana at the World Cup. Now though, it appears that Spurs are the latest club to show an interest in signing the player.
The Latest: Spurs in the race to sign Kudus
According to a recent report from Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Spurs are one of the clubs, alongside Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and AC Milan, that are interested in signing Kudus.
The report also adds that the midfielder’s price tag could increase significantly if he were to find himself impressing for Ghana during the World Cup.
The Verdict: An exciting signing for Spurs?
Across the 68 appearances Kudus has made for Ajax across their senior and youth sides, the midfielder has scored 20 goals and delivered six assists along the way.
10 of those goals have come in the 21 appearances he’s made for the club this season across all competitions including the Eredivisie and the Champions League whilst predominantly playing in the centre-forward role.
Having had 33 attempts at goal across all competitions this season, 14 of them have been on target, leaving Kudus with a goal-per-shot ratio of 0.27, the third-highest at the club.
Hailed for a “ridiculous” pass he made in a game earlier this season by journalist Owuraku Ampofo, the Ajax star has been touted by ex-Ajax defender Keje Molenaar to be worth up to €70m (£60m), which could make a potential transfer move for him quite an expensive investment.
Taking all of this into account, it’s safe to say that given the attacking talent he has shown at club level this season, securing a transfer deal for Kudus could be a very exciting move for Tottenham to make.
