Wolves transfer news: Mohammed Kudus now on Real Madrid's radar

Just a few months after Mohammed Kudus was linked with Wolves, Mohammed Kudus is reportedly now a target for Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old made headlines yesterday for his brilliant performance for Ghana against South Korea at the 2022 World Cup.

Kudus scored two goals for the Black Stars to set up a mouthwatering clash with Uruguay later this week.

The Ajax ace scored in the first-half with a glancing header from a brilliant cross from Jordan Ayew.

After South Korea had got back level at 2-2, Kudus then scored with a lovely controlled finish into the far corner.

Throughout the game Kudus showcased his excellent pace and dribbling attributes.

The attacking midfielder, who can also play wide, really lit up the game, and it’s clear he is one of the players to really look out for in Qatar.

He also caught the eye against Portugal, and it appears clubs are already taking notice.

According to Football Ghana, who reported on interest from Wolves during the last transfer window, Real Madrid are now keen on Kudus.

The Spanish heavyweights are closely monitoring the youngster now following his exploits in Ghana’s first two World Cup games.

Real look as though they could lose a few players next year when their contracts expire.

Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio all stand to leave the club as free agents.

Mohammed Kudus may already be out of Wolves’ reach as Real Madrid reportedly register interest

Wolves showed an interest in Kudus a few months ago, but if officials had any plans to sign him in January then they may have their work cut out.

The World Cup is the ultimate shop window, and Kudus looks a real talent.

He is shining on the biggest stage, after already hitting 10 goals for Ajax this season.

He looks set to become a top-class player in the future.

Wolves did somehow manage to sign Matheus Nunes in the summer, so a move shouldn’t be fully ruled out. Especially with Julen Lopetegui now at the helm.

But it will be very, very difficult to sign Kudus from here. Real Madrid are one of the biggest clubs in the world. Their pull and finances could simply be too much for Wolves to compete with.
