Wolverhampton Wanderers have joined the race to sign Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Desire to leave
The 22-year-old still has three years remaining on his contract at the Johan Cruyff Arena, but has been linked with a move away after being unhappy with his lack of game time, playing just 24 minutes so far this season.
Manager Alfred Schreuder has been recently quoted saying he doesn’t want his midfield maestro to leave, though he’s now the subject of strong interest from two clubs, and it looks like a move to the Premier League could be on the cards.
The Latest: Wolves eyeing Kudus
According to Football Ghana and Ghana Soccer Net (via Sport Witness), it’s claimed that Kudus has ‘agreed on personal terms’ to join Everton, with there being a chance he ‘could end up’ at Goodison Park after Frank Lampard has ‘not given up’, despite Ajax not wanting to sell.
It’s stated that they are set to face competition though, with Wolves now deciding to ‘join the pursuit’ and ‘set to open talks’ with the player’s representatives ahead of a potential move.
It’s reported that Kudus ‘will fancy a dream move’ to England, and it seems either Everton or Wolves will make that dream a reality.
The Verdict: One for the future
Kudus has huge potential, and if he were to put pen to paper at Molineux, he would be such an exciting player for the future.
The 5 foot 10 star, hailed as ‘electric’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, made seven goal contributions in 16 appearances when playing in his natural attacking midfield role last season, but also has the versatility to play anywhere across the midfielder or even up front.
Should Wolves sign Kudus?
It remains to be seen whether Kudus would be a guaranteed starter under Lage, but with his guidance, he more than has the opportunity to become a revelation in the English top-flight in years to come.
