Wolves transfer news: Wanderers interested in Ajax star Mohammed Kudus

Wolves are reportedly interested in Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus.

According to Football Ghana, the club have joined the pursuit of the 22-year-old, and are set to open talks with the Dutch giants.

Kudus has hardly featured for Ajax so far this season, playing just 23 minutes across three appearances in the Eredivisie.

The youngster has apparently already held three meetings with manager Alfred Schreuder over his bench role.

It is stated that the club want to keep Kudus.

And last week, Schreuder was quoted as saying about Kudus (Liverpool Echo): “I haven’t heard anything. I think he should not leave. You can see that he is important. We need a lot of good players.

But he wants more game time, and is keen on a move to the Premier League.

Kudus has been with Ajax since the summer of 2020 when he joined from Danish club Nordsjælland.

He has clocked up 46 appearances for the first-team so far, scoring six goals and making four assists.

Wolves may need to hurry along if Kudus is someone they genuinely want.

Ghanasoccernet report today that Everton are also keen on him, and personal terms have actually already been agreed.

It would be exciting if Wolves managed to bring Kudus to Molineux.

The youngster has big potential, and is someone capable of making things happen in those attacking midfield positions.

Former Ghana international Emmanuel Agyemang Badu is certainly a big fan. He said of Kudus in April 2021 (via Goal): “I have watched his games at Ajax and he is a very intelligent player and he is very confident on the ball. Unfortunately injuries are threatening to slow him down.

“Kudus can be one of the greatest players from Ghana, like Abedi Pele if he can stay free of injuries.”

Him coming in would perhaps see one of Connor Ronan or Luke Cundle leave the club on some kind of basis.
