In a recent report, Manchester Evening News mentioned that Manchester United are keen on recruiting Ajax attacker Mohammed Kudus. It has been claimed that Man United boss Erik ten Hag is a big admirer of the Ghana international and wants to bring him to Old Trafford in the summer.
Kudus’ Impressive Run Of Form In Dutch Football This Season
Kudus is enjoying a fine campaign in the Dutch Eredivisie as he has managed to put in several productive displays for Ajax in the final third. The Accra-born talent has found the back of the net on 16 occasions and earned three assists in 32 appearances for the Dutch club this season across various competitions.
The 22-year-old has been a consistent performer on the attacking end of the field based on his average of 2.0 shots, 0.9 key passes and 2.2 dribbles per game in the Dutch Eredivisie. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 87% in the Dutch top tier (stats via whoscored).
Kudus is under contract at the Dutch club until the summer of 2025. Thus, Man United will have to make a big offer if they want to lure him to the Theatre of Dreams at the end of this campaign.
What Will Kudus Bring To Manchester United?
Kudus can strike the ball with power and precision from long range and has got the vision to create some decent chances for his teammates in the final third. He can even make a few intelligent runs with the ball toward the opponent’s penalty box and can retain possession effortlessly for his team. The Ghana sensation is primarily an attacking midfielder but can also fill in as a striker down the middle or as a box-to-box midfielder if his manager asks him to do so.
We can expect Kudus to bring more quality to Man United head coach Erik ten Hag‘s attacking department at Old Trafford. He is good enough to nail down a regular starting spot at the Mancunian club and could help them compete for some major trophies in the coming seasons.
Therefore, ten Hag should focus on getting a deal done for Kudus in the summer. At 22, he has got the potential to become a future star in European football and would be an excellent, long-term option for the Red Devils to consider at the end of this campaign.
