Everton: Pete O’Rourke makes Mohammed Kudus claim

Everton made a £15m bid for Mohammed Kudus in the summer but were unsuccessful in their efforts and now a reliable source has made a claim on the club’s pursuit of the talented player.

What’s the latest?

Speaking to Football FanCast, journalist Pete O’Rourke claims another move for Kudus would get Everton supporters “excited”.

O’Rourke said:

“He’d definitely be somebody who would get Everton fans excited.

“I think they were excited at his potential arrival in the summer only for the deal not to happen.”

Lampard can get Goodison rocking

Despite the struggles Everton have faced over the last 12 months, there is no doubt that Frank Lampard could get Goodison Park rocking again if the club were able to pull off a deal for the Ajax star.

The Toffees are in desperate need of more creativity and clinical performers in their attacking threat with only Wolverhampton Wanderers scoring fewer goals than Everton in the Premier League so far this season, and Kudus could be the perfect solution to improve the attacking threat.

Over 14 Eredivisie appearances so far, the 22-year-old ace – who was hailed “explosive” by journalist Deji Faremi – has scored five goals and completed 70% of his dribbles, as well as averaging 1.8 shots and 2.6 duels won per game, proving that he clearly has an eye for goal.

Not only that, Kudus is representing Ghana in Qatar at the World Cup and despite his team losing 3-2 to Portugal put on an exemplary performance that will catch the eye of the powers at Goodison Park.

Mohammed Kudus vs Portugal

The attacking midfielder earned the highest SofaScore rating in his team (7.4) during his 77-minute performance – completing 100% of his dribbles, winning 67% of his duels, making one tackle and successfully delivering 100% of his long balls.

Kudus has been the recipient of high praise for his recent performances with Ajax and Netherlands legend Wesley Sneijder claiming the rising star is “great to watch” after his display in the Champions League against Liverpool earlier this season:

“He shoots it fantastic,” Sneijder claimed.

“Until then, he hadn’t been in the game, but this is the Kudus in form. A great player to watch.”

Should Everton try to sign Kudus again?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that being said, the signing of Kudus would be a major coup for Everton and would certainly give the team more depth and quality in their attacking threat over the second half of the season.
