West Ham United’s transfer deal to sign Mohammed Kudus from Ajax this summer is reportedly still on.
However, that does not appear to be the case now…
£46 million West Ham transfer reportedly now back on in big boost for David Moyes
Foot Mercato reckon that the Hammers are still in talks with Ajax about signing the 23-year-old.
However, a compromise on the fee will have to be found if West Ham are to sign Kudus.
The Ajax star is a truly elite player and he would take the Hammers to another level entirely.
He can play as a midfielder, on either wing or even as an auxiliary striker if need be.
Kudus has pace and power in abundance and a certain kind of explosiveness that we desperately lack right now.
If we do sign him, it will probably end up being for around £41-43 million I would assume, with the Hammers offering £41 million and Ajax demanding £46 million. For that kind of money, it will have to go down as a great transfer for West Ham.
Whether it ends up going through or not remains to be seen though.
