West Ham Secures The Transfer Of Ajax Midfielder Kudus

West Ham have completed the signing of Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus from Ajax for a reported fee of £38 million. The 23-year-old has agreed to a five-year contract with the Premier League club, making him their fourth major signing of the season. Kudus had an impressive campaign with Ajax last season, scoring 19 goals and providing seven assists across all competitions. Notably, he scored a hat-trick in Ajax’s Europa League play-off victory against Ludogorets in Bulgaria.

Expressing his excitement, Kudus stated that playing in a league like the Premier League has been a lifelong dream for him. He emphasized his desire to continue improving and entertaining the fans through his performances.

Kudus has already represented Ghana in 24 international matches and participated in the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar. He joined Ajax in 2020 and won two Dutch league titles during his time with the club. West Ham had previously acquired Kudus’s teammate Edson Alvarez earlier in the summer, and they have also made signings in the form of England midfielder James Ward-Prowse and Greece defender Konstantinos Mavropanos. These transfers have been made possible through the funds generated from Declan Rice’s £105 million move to Arsenal.

West Ham manager David Moyes expressed his delight at securing the services of Kudus, describing him as a highly talented player who has impressed at the highest level, notably in the UEFA Champions League. Moyes acknowledged the interest from various top clubs in signing Kudus during the summer transfer window.
