Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Mohammed Kudus this week.
According to outlet GhanaWeb, the north London side have sent scouts to watch the Ajax midfielder over the last six months and believe that his lack of game time could worth favourably in their attempts to sign him.
However, it’s also thought that the Lilywhites are prepared to wait another year to sign him, despite manager Antonio Conte wanting further bodies to help them compete for all the silverware available.
It still remains to be seen whether the Eredivisie champions would be open to a sale, particularly after the 22-year-old scored in their recent Dutch Super Cup defeat to foes PSV Eindhoven, having come off the bench for the final 27 minutes.
A lot of his young career to date has been blighted by injury. He sustained quite a serious one during his Champions League debut against Liverpool back in 2020 and as a result, was only able to muster up a total of 43 appearances for Ajax, with just 450 minutes of competitive action coming last season.
That said, the former Nordsjaelland gem has been touted for big things in the past.
His former manager Erik ten Hag, now in charge of Spurs’ top-flight rivals Manchester United, once claimed that the 5 foot 10 midfielder had “incredible potential,” whilst his current teammate Daley Blind has even likened him to a big-money signing in the shape of Frenkie de Jong.
“You can just see that he has a lot of quality. I think he will certainly help us on our way. He is a good player,” the Dutchman told Ajax TV (via Football Ghana).
“He still has some things that he can act faster because he is a lot of tricks, but you can sometimes enjoy that too. He still has to vary it a bit, but it is a good asset.”
“He can play a man and make a gear. He is quite a bit like Frenkie in that respect.”
Tottenham have even been mooted with interest in the Netherlands international in the past but as that ship has since sailed, Conte could find an alternative option in Kudus.
The 16-cap Ghana star has bags of potential and would surely be a worthy signing, whether that be before this summer’s transfer deadline on September 1st or in time for next season.
