Ajax Declines £36m Offer from West Ham for Mohammed Kudus

By Xorkpe Sosu 2 Min Read

Reports indicate that AJAX has rejected a £36 million bid from WEST HAM for Mohammed Kudus.

Manager David Moyes is displaying strong interest in securing the talented Ghanaian player to bolster their offensive capabilities.

Initially, WEST HAM approached Kudus last week, but their proposition was declined by AJAX.

To pursue the player further, the team’s technical director, Tim Steidten, journeyed to Amsterdam for additional discussions on the matter the previous Thursday.

Following this, WEST HAM presented an enhanced £36 million offer for AJAX’s standout performer.

Regrettably, the Mail newspaper confirms that the Dutch club has once again opted to decline the proposal from the Hammers.

Kudus ’23’ remains under contract with AJAX until 2025.

In April, AJAX attempted to extend his contract by an additional year, but their endeavor was turned down.

The forward has been linked to several potential transfers to the Premier League, with Manchester United having been previously mentioned as a potential suitor.

During the earlier part of the summer, Brighton seemed to be on the brink of finalizing an agreement; however, the deal ultimately fell through.

During the last season, Kudus showcased his prowess by netting 18 goals across 42 appearances in all competitions, in addition to providing seven assists.

In the current campaign, he has already contributed one goal and one assist in his initial two outings.

West Ham’s interest in strengthening their squad comes on the heels of Declan Rice’s departure, which saw him move for a significant £105 million earlier this summer.

Moyes’ team has secured the services of Edson Alvarez, previously Kudus’ teammate at Ajax, in addition to recruiting James Ward-Prowse and Konstantinos Mavropanos from Southampton and Stuttgart, respectively.

Furthermore, they are actively pursuing a new striker following the departure of Gianluca Scamacca, and Sevilla standout Youssef En-Nesyri is prominently featured on their list of preferred candidates.
