Liverpool ready to trigger Mohammed Kudus's £85 million release clause this summer Transfers

The departure of Liverpool attackers Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international who is the subject of intense interest from Saudi Arabia, Darwin Nunez, the Uruguayan international who often misses the decisive goal, and Luis Diaz, the Colombian international who is rumoured to be of interest from Barcelona and PSG, are beginning to cause a stir.

Of these, Egyptian King, who is now 32 years old, is beginning to show his limits as a winger, and a change of position is being discussed even if he stays. And Liverpool are looking for a replacement on the right wing, with a list of promising players from Europe, not just England.

Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus, who moved to West Ham United last summer, is one player who has been rumoured to be of interest throughout the season. As well as an attacking midfielder, he has also played on the left and right wing and at centre-forward.

According to GHANAsoccernet, Liverpool are serious about signing the player and are preparing to trigger a £85 million release clause on his contract, according to international media.

It is also reported that Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also made contact.

The former Ajax midfielder, who is under contract until 2028, has scored 13 goals and provided six assists in 44 games this season, including in the Premier League and Europa League. He has also been a growing presence in the Ghana national team, scoring 13 goals in 26 games.

He is a strong, physical player who can take on the toughest defenders and is a first-class ball handler. His left-footed shots are powerful and he has the dexterity to play in most attacking positions.

The 23-year-old midfielder has developed into one of the best attackers in the Premier League, but his offensive and defensive transitions leave a little to be desired.

Another concern is that the transfer fee is too high, and it is not clear whether Liverpool, who are also looking to acquire a new centre-back, would be willing to pay that amount.

Will the Ghanaian midfielder, who has rapidly improved his reputation in his first year in England, step up his game this summer…?
