Report: ‘Outrageous’ player desperate to join West Ham but has a big problem

Ajax star Mohammed Kudus is reportedly keen to join David Moyes’ West Ham United in the summer transfer window but there’s a problem.

Accordingly 90 minsWest Ham United are in talks with Ajax over a deal for Mohammed Kudus in the summer transfer window.

Kudus turned down a move to Brighton and Hove Albion earlier in the summer and is now open to a move to West Ham.

The Ghana international has “virtually agreed” on personal terms with the Hammers, who will play in this season’s UEFA Europa League after winning the UEFA Europa Conference League last season.

However, Premier League club West Ham and Eredivisie club Ajax cannot agree on a transfer fee.

While Ajax are asking £40m, West Ham are ready to pay £29.9m for the 23-year-old, who former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand called “outrageous” on BT Sport in September 2022.

West Ham United should strike a deal with Ajax star Mohammed Kudus

In our view, West Ham United should pay the extra £10m or so needed to secure a deal with Ajax star Mohammed Kudus in the summer transfer window.

If the attacker wants to join the Hammers and manager David Moyes believes he would improve his squad, the London club should pay the required transfer fee.

The Ghanaian can act as an attacking midfielder or as a winger.

The youngster made 19 starts and 11 substitute appearances for Ajax in the Eredivisie last season.

Kudus scored 11 goals and provided three assists in those games.

The 23-year-old scored one goal for Ajax in last season’s UEFA Europa League.
