Report: AC Milan could make move for former Wolves target Mohammed Kudus

AC Milan could reportedly make a move for Mohammed Kudus, a player Wolves were linked with towards the end of the summer transfer window.

According to Tuttosport, the Rossoneri are ready to make a go of signing the Ghana international.

They believe the 22-year-old could be a good replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.

The 40-year-old joined Milan for a second spell in January 2020.

Atalanta’s Danish striker Rasmus Højlund also on the Italian giants’ list.

Kudus is a player whose reputation has been growing in recent times.

The youngster has already hit seven goals in 2022/23 in 10 appearances so far for Ajax, with two of those coming in the Champions League against Rangers and Liverpool.

It was reported by Football Ghana that Wolves had entered the race to sign Kudus at the end of the last transfer window.

Supposedly Wolves were battling Everton for him.

At the time, Kudus was featuring very little for Ajax, but he’s now in red hot form.

Ultimately, Wanderers went ahead and signing Sasa Kalajdzic from Stuttgart. As luck would have it, Kalajdzic suffered an ACL injury on his debut for the club.

That prompted a move for Diego Costa, who is expected to feature very soon.

Kudus has certainly exploded into life after a low-key start to the season. Indeed, he is described by Tuttosport in their report as a ‘revelation’.

From it looking like he was perhaps going to leave, he is now one of Ajax’s key players.

It is little wonder AC Milan are taking a look at time, especially with Zlatan expected to leave and Olivier Giroud also out of contract next summer.

It remains to be seen how Kudus gets on this term and if he will prove to be someone Wolves officials have some regrets over.
