Mohammed Kudus is due to fly into London today to undergo a medical ahead of signing for West Ham after a deal was agreed with Ajax, reports The Mirror.
The newspaper outlet reports on their official website (dated August 26) that the Ghanaian international is scheduled to sign a five-year contract at the London Stadium and join Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, and Dinos Mavropanos as recent additions.
Ajax’s technical director Tim Steidten traveled to Bulgaria to complete the transaction, and the forward scored a hat-trick in the team’s victory over Ludogrets before deciding to join West Ham.
Technical director Tim Steidten traveled to Bulgaria on Thursday to finalize the transfer of Kudus, who had just scored a hat-trick in Ajax’s victory over Ludogorets in the Europa League, according to what they said.
The Ghanaian is anticipated to go to London on Saturday with Steidten before getting a medical checkup. He will sign a five-year contract after reaching personal terms with the club and following Mexico midfielder Edson Alvarez from Amsterdam.
There were some concerns after Gianluca Scamacca moved for Atalanta this summer as to whether our assault would be weaker than it was the previous year.
However, one could argue that it is now stronger as a result of the addition of Kudus, a Ghanaian international who brings with him Champions League and World Cup experience that the Italian lacked.
He can play in midfield or across the front line, and he has a terrific eye for goal, making his adaptability another asset that should be commended.
Numerous elite teams were said to be interested in signing Kudus, but West Ham moved fast and effectively to close the transaction, and now supporters can look forward to his integration into the team.
Our team is more forward-thinking as a result of Lucas Paqueta’s anticipated tenure at the organization, and even without Declan Rice, the midfield can still be feared around the league, albeit for different reasons.
