Ghana international Mohammed Kudus has joined West Ham United FC from AFC Ajax Amsterdam. He was announced as new signing of the Hammers on Sunday, August 27, 2023.

Kudus, 23, was courted by several top European clubs in the ongoing summer transfer including Liverpool FC, Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea FC but the Hammers secured the Ghanaian star boy to East London.

On Saturday, he completed his mandatory medical test to sign a five-year contract with deal worth €44.5million.

Manager David Moyes has spoken highly of him, having gotten impressed with his talent and versatility.

Meanwhile, he is the third addition to West Ham United FC set-up this summer after they acquired his former Ajax teammate Edson Alvarez and Ward-Prowse from Southampton.

The former FC Nordsjaelland star and Right To Dream Academy product is expected to explore the opportunities and flourish in the English top-tier having been considered a top player already.

Kudus’ performances for Nordsjælland attracted the attention of Ajax, with then-head coach Erik ten Hag praising his ‘incredible potential’ following the then-19-year-old’s switch to Amsterdam in July 2020. That praise proved well-founded as the youngster scored one goal and assisted three more in his opening three appearances for the club.

The 2022/23 season saw Kudus take his game to a new level, with goals against Liverpool, Napoli and Rangers in the Champions League, eleven more in the Dutch Eredivisie and one each in the UEFA Europa League, Dutch Cup and Johan Cruyff Shield, taking his total to 19 goals and seven assists in all competitions.

Unsurprisingly, given those numbers, Kudus also started all three group games for Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar, where he netted twice in a 3-2 victory over South Korea. All in, he has seven goals and three assists in 24 caps for his country.

Kudus, scored four goals in six UEFA Champions League group-stage appearances for Ajax last season.

He will now wear the number 14 for West Ham United FC.
