West Ham United are on the verge of securing a deal for a Ghanaian playmaker Mohammed Kudus on a permanent move from Ajax FC according to The Athletic.
The London-based club has submitted an official offer worth €41m plus €3m in add-ons (£35m + £2.56m) in a deal that would include a 10% sell-on clause and Ajax is expected to accept the deal after numerous rejected bids.
Mohammed Kudus has been instrumental for Ajax since joining from Danish Side FC Nordsjaelland in July 2021. The 23-year-old has already agreed on personal terms and is expected to travel to London for medical examination.
In three seasons spent in Amsterdam, Kudus scored 16 goals in 63 Eredivisie matches. He has also scored seven goals in 24 appearances for Ghana including two in the World Cup last winter in Qatar.
West Ham United looks to reinforce its attacking force before deadline day which is 1st September after acquiring the services of James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez from Southampton and Ajax respectively.
Kudus is currently in Bulgaria to face Ludogrets FC in the UEFA Europa League play-off 1st leg.
