Mohammed Kudus, a midfielder for Ajax, has expressed interest in joining West Ham United, which gives them great motivation to sign him,
even though their opening offer for the Ghanaian international was turned down, the Hammers aren’t losing up on the player.
The Hammers’ bid was rejected overnight on Friday because it fell short of what their Dutch rivals would contemplate offering in exchange for Kudus.
Although it’s uncertain where things will go from here, West Ham United isn’t giving up on making a third signing of the summer after agreeing to contracts with James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez.
The latest news about a bid being rejected by Ajax shows that the Hammers’ offer was unquestionably lower than anything Ajax would have considered in order to sell their prized asset, especially since Brighton had a bid of approximately £35 million accepted by Ajax a few weeks ago.
Only the Irons know why they made such a low offer for a brilliant and well-known midfielder, but whether it was done to test the market or not, Ajax isn’t known for selling their biggest assets for nothing.
Kudus is worth every penny, so if West Ham United is serious about landing their top midfield target this summer, they must simply match that £35 million offer—or more.
Due to his exploits at the club and international levels, including his standout performance for Ghana in the World Cup in Qatar last December, Kudus has established himself as one of Europe’s finest young midfielders over the previous two seasons.
With Manchester City’s interest in Lucas Paqueta waning, David Moyes now has the thrilling and fantastic opportunity to enhance the midfield quality and inventiveness he currently possesses by bringing in another outstanding and established player to team up with the Brazilian. Making a second offer for Kudus, or perhaps matching the £35 million, would be a wise move for the Irons.
