Mohammed Kudus informs Ajax of intention to leave club
Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus has expressed his desire to leave Ajax during the upcoming summer transfer window.
It is reported that a deal for the talented player could command a fee of around £40 million. Several clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle, are said to be monitoring his situation.
Kudus has declined a one-year contract extension offered by Ajax, as his current deal is set to expire in June 2025. This decision indicates his intention to seek a new challenge elsewhere.
The 20-year-old has had an impressive season at Ajax, delivering his best performances since joining the club. He has scored 18 goals across all competitions and provided six assists, showcasing his attacking prowess.
Mohammed Kudus since joining Ajax:
• 20/21 – 9 starts in 22 games
• 21/22 – 9 starts in 20 games
• 22/23 – 28 starts in 41 games
Kudus has started in 67.5% of games this season. I feel staying would be better than United or Arsenal making him a squad player. pic.twitter.com/ghpEmDW0Hu
