Ajax could now beat West Ham United by signing Metz striker Georges Mikautadze after selling Mohammed Kudus.
West Ham United have signed Mohammed Kudus but could now see Ajax spend the money on Metz goalscorer Georges Mikautadze.
This is acc L’Equipewho claim that Ajax have started talks to sign Mikautadze.
It is said that Ajax are ‘very fond’ of Mikautadze and are now pushing to bring him to Amsterdam before the transfer deadline.
Talks are ongoing and Metz is currently asking around €20m (£17m).
Ajax are looking for new scoring chances and could now beat West Ham with the signing of Mikautadze.
Reports from the Daily Mail There were indications last week that West Ham are considering a late move to sign the Georgia international.
Gianluca Scamacca has joined Atalanta and West Ham will certainly be on the lookout for a new striker in the coming days.
Mikautadze was an option after scoring 24 goals in 40 games for Metz last season but could now switch to Amsterdam instead.
Ajax could spend Mohammed Kudu’s money on West Ham’s target Georges Mikautadze
There’s a certain irony here, considering Ajax and West Ham just struck a deal.
West Ham announced the arrival of Ajax star Mohammed Kudus on Sunday night have agreed a £38m deal with the Dutch giants.
Kudus appears to be a huge coup for West Ham and should provide a real spark for David Moyes’ side in the last third.
The Ghanaian’s arrival has certainly delighted fans but Ajax could now use the money from his sale to sign Mikautadze.
Ask most West Ham fans and they’d probably much prefer kudus to MIkautadze.
Still, it’s a potentially eye-catching addition that could elude David Moyes, who might have preferred to sign both players rather than one or the other.
