Mohammed Kudus today sent Wolves a big transfer message with his brilliant performance for Ghana against South Korea at the World Cup.
The Ajax star was starting for the Black Stars again in Qatar, and was looking to build on his lively display against Portugal last week.
Kudus caught the eye in that 3-2 defeat, with Ally McCoist raving about him in the second-half.
Kudus was the bright spark then, and today he was again.
The 22-year-old was on target twice in Ghana’s thrilling 3-2 victory over South Korea in Qatar.
His first goal was a lovely glancing header into the far corner after a cross from Jordan Ayew. Kudus found space between a couple of defenders and timed his run perfectly so as not to stray offside.
In the second-half for his second goal, he produced a controlled left-foot finish into the bottom corner. That turned out to be the winner for Ghana after South Korea had got back level.
It was just an all-round great performance from Kudus – who was named Player of the Match – whose market value is rising by the game.
The youngster came into this World Cup in terrific form for Ajax. He’s already scored 10 goals in 21 games, and made two assists.
Prior to his fantastic form, it was reported that Kudus was unhappy at Ajax due to a lack of game time, and that Wolves had interest in him.
If there was any truth to those claims, then Molineux officials might be finding it really hard to ignore him now.

Kudus is establishing himself as one of the players to watch at this year’s World Cup.
That’s now two excellent performances under his belt, and it’s possible there will be a lot of clamour for him in January.
It is not clear if Wanderers wish to make a fresh attempt to sign him.
If they to do want to try and sign him, it will not be an easy task.
Ajax are no fools and will be demanding top dollar for their young asset after performing so well in the shop window.
