West Ham United have been dealt a huge Mohammed Kudus blow after a report claimed he was London Stadium bound.

Mohammed Kudus is firmly on the radar of West Ham in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old Ajax ace is apparently close to joining West Ham. It was suggested that even if Lucas Paqueta stays at the London Stadium – which now looks to be almost a formality – David Moyes would still push to bring the Ajax ace to the club.

And what’s more, the Ghanaian is apparently desperate to join the Hammers this summer (90min).

All is clearly not quite what the media would have us believe though…

West Ham dealt huge Mohammed Kudus blow after report claimed he was London Stadium bound

The 23-year-old started for Ajax today during their Eredivisie clash with Excelsior.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw and Kudus racked up an assist for his side.

There is absolutely no way that the Ghana international would have been included in the Ajax squad today if a deal to bring him to West Ham was even remotely close.

The Dutch giants could not afford Kudus picking up an injury if they were on the verge of having a deal in place to sell him to West Ham.

Who knows, this one might still happen late on in the transfer window.

However, I have a feeling that with Paqueta set to stay at the London Stadium now, Kudus will not be leaving Ajax, and certainly not to join West Ham.
