Mohammed Kudus, a 23-year-old midfielder, has emerged as a popular brand, with rumors of interest from Liverpool after his impressive performance for Ghana at the World Cup in Qatar.
After playing for Nordsjælland, he has been playing for Ajax since 2020, scoring a total of 27 goals and 12 assists in 87 games in the Champions League and Europa League.
After his achievements in the Netherlands, the player joined West Ham United in the transfer market this summer for around 38 million pounds, where he played five Premier League games, two Europa League games, and one League Cup game. He is in the midst of adjusting to English soccer, especially cup competitions.
The Ghanaian attacking midfielder has played against a variety of opponents during his career.
He has faced some of the best players at club level and on the international stage, but he revealed that Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara, whom he played against in the Champions League while at Ajax, was his strongest opponent.
“I’ll say Thiago Alcantara,”
“Yeah, played against him in the Champions League against Liverpool,”
“And, I think he was at the top of his game, it was difficult to get close to him.”JD Football
He joined Liverpool in 2020, and with his exceptional passing sense and ball control, he gave the team options to break down from midfield, which had been scarce in Liverpool until then.
He also mastered Klopp’s style of soccer and contributed to the team’s ball winning by making well-timed tackles up front.
However, he has been plagued by repeated injuries, often spending nearly half the season off the bench, making it difficult to calculate him as a competitive force. His contract expires next year, and he may leave the club on a free transfer.
Can the former Spanish midfielder, whom the young midfielder is yearning to play in the Premier League in the future, overcome his injuries and blossom for the last time at Anfield?
