“We might need to wait a little bit more time for Dinos and Mo to get settled in, but overall I am really pleased with how they have started.”

The 23-year-old is obviously an elite player, and he’ll go on to be a fantastic signing for the Hammers over the next few years.

Mohammed Kudus will be a big, big player for West Ham – the 23-year-old has everything needed to go on and be a huge star in the English game.

He definitely needs time to adjust to the sheer pace of the games in the Premier League though. Once he’s fully settled, I expect to see great things from the Ghanaian.
