Because of his friendship with Erik ten Hag at Ajax, the Ghanaian has been on Manchester United’s radar since his arrival.
The rumors reappeared this transfer window, with Sky Sports stating that Manchester United, along with a slew of other Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal, were interested.
However, none of these three clubs were able to capture the young forward’s signature, with another top-flight team swooping in instead.
Mohammed Kudus has agreed to join West Ham United.
Kudus is on the verge of signing a deal with the Hammers, as revealed by the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano with a “here we go!”
The Ajax player passed his medical, giving the club the go-ahead to finalize the transaction.
He will sign a contract until 2028, with a one-year extension option. This is supposed to be signed on Sunday.
West Ham has acquired a very promising young player. He recently played his final game for the Dutch national team and finished with a hat-trick against Ludogorets.
This raises the question of whether United snatched the appropriate man from the Eredivisie team.
Kudus… is he better than Antony?
Antony is one player who has received a lot of flak this season. He hasn’t lived up to his price tag since arriving from Ajax.
This is a make-or-break season for the Brazilian, who has had more than enough time to adjust to English football.
This raises the question of whether United signed the wrong Ajax forward. Former Dutch icon Marco van Basten appears to believe so, claiming to be ‘better than Antony’.
Only time will tell whether Kudus will succeed in the Premier League. However, it appears to be a fantastic signing for David Moyes’ side.
