Liverpool have reportedly entered the race to sign Mohammed Kudus and are prepared to ‘fight’ for him alongside city rival Everton.
This comes courtesy of De Telegraaf following a host of impressive performances from the Ajax star at both club and international levels.
The 22-year-old registered a brace against South Korea in their second group stage clash at the World Cup to secure Otto Addo’s – who labelled the player an ‘extraordinary character’ (as relayed by the Mirror) – men their first three points in the competition.
Though capable of playing as an attacking midfielder, there’s no question that the centre-forward role is where Kudus thrives for club and country.
With a contract not set to expire until 2025, the Dutch outfit will be in no rush to sell one of their star men in the next two windows – a reality that may suit Liverpool quite well given that the priority remains to sign new midfield options.
Assuming that Jude Bellingham remains the priority, however, it doesn’t make a great deal of sense why we wouldn’t strengthen further back in the holding midfield role.
The Ghanian does come highly-rated, though it remains to be seen whether we’ll move as early as the upcoming winter window.
