Highly-Rated Midfielder Mohammed Kudus Is New Top Transfer Target For Chelsea

Chelsea, as usual, are set for a busy transfer window. They have a new top priority on their shopping list – none other than Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus

While Chelsea’s interest in the player seems concrete, if they wish to make a move for Kudus, he will not come cheap – Ajax have him rated at around £40 million.

The Blues currently have a lack of options in midfield. All-star box-to-box player N’Golo Kante has left the club, with Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic expected to follow him through the exit.

Due to this, they need to sign some central midfielders – bringing Kudus to Stamford Bridge would be an excellent place to start.

Kudus is an adaptable midfielder – not only can he play centrally, but he is also very comfortable in attacking midfield or as a second striker. Additionally, he can also play as winger and as an out-and-out striker. Not only is he a capable midfielder, he will also provide a utility option to Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Who else, besides Chelsea, are interested in a move for Mohammed Kudus?

Mohammed Kudus is one of the most coveted players in the world right now. Aside from Chelsea, massive clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle United are all thought to be interested in the Ghanaian.

Due to this, Chelsea may face an uphill battle to acquire Kudus – all but one of the clubs mentioned above will be playing Champions League football next season. All players dream of playing in Europe’s premier competition – it can play a massive factor in their final decision.
