Mohammed Kudus attracted a lot of attention from the Premier League sides and it looks like West Ham are going to be the one who gets him.

Brighton was heavily linked with the player, and were understood to have have reached an agreement with Ajax for the player but couldn't get the deal over the line as personal terms was not agreed.

West Ham is said to be signing the player for €44.5m plus some add ons and sell on clause which is considered an excellent piece of business given the Hammers were able to sell Declan Rice for over €100m as shown in the Premier League transfer news.

Kudus scored a hat-trick in the play-off of the Europa League for Ajax against Ludogorets and indicated that it might be his last game for the Dutch side. Kudus was set to fly to London for his medical yesterday.

The medical went fine and he became a West Ham player until 2028 with an option of extending the contract to 2029. This might prove to be a great signing for David Moyes's side as he would be able to fill up the big Declan Rice void in the midfield.

Kudus started his professional career at Danish side Nordsjaelland in 2018, before joining Ajax in 2020 where he has scored 27 goals in 87 appearances, helping his side to two Dutch league titles.

He scored 11 goals in 30 Eredivisie appearances in the previous season as Ajax finished third in the league.

For Ghana, Kudus has scored seven goals in 24 games since making his debut in 2019 and started all three matches for his side at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scoring twice in a 3-2 win over South Korea.

He is set to become David Moyes' second purchase from Ajax this summer following the arrival of fellow midfielder Edson Alvarez in a deal thought to be worth about £35m.

West Ham also signed midfielder James Ward-Prowse from Southampton and defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from Stuttgart earlier this month.
