‘HERE WE GO!’ West Ham sign ‘South Korea multi-goaler’ Mohamed Cudjoe for £64.5 billion transfer fee

August 26, 2023 | by

West Ham United have Mohamed Koudou in their arms.

Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European football transfer market, tweeted on Saturday (June 26), “Koudou is heading to West Ham! A verbal agreement has been reached with Ajax for a total fee of €45 million, with a sell-on clause.” “A five-year contract has been agreed with the player and a medical has been scheduled for this Saturday. This is a big deal for Tim Steyn and the signing is expected within 48 hours.” He then added his signature “here we go” line, which effectively sealed the deal, making the transfer a foregone conclusion.

In fact, Cudjoe was closer to joining Brighton than West Ham. “Brighton and Ajax have agreed a deal for Koudou,” wrote David Onsteins of The Athletic in England. If the deal is finalized, the transfer fee will be in the region of €40 million. It will be a club record, surpassing Brighton’s new acquisition of João Pedro (€34.2 million) this summer.”

“Cudus has agreed personal terms with Brighton. Roberto De Gea sees him as a key target and the player is keen to leave the Johan Cruyff Arena. A combination of physicality and speed, Koudjous played seven positions for Ajax. His main position is as a right winger, but he can also play in the number six role and as a central striker.” However, it seems that Koudou will be joining the English Premier League (EPL) with West Ham rather than Brighton.

The Ghanaian prospect made his debut for Norway’s Norsjelland. In the 2019-20 season, despite his young age, he scored 10 offensive points (9 goals and 1 assist) in the league. 메이저사이트

Ajax approached him and made a deal for a modest €9 million. The investment paid off. Kudus gradually increased his playing time and established himself as a key player. Last season, he racked up 25 attacking points (18 goals and seven assists) in all competitions, including the Dutch Eredivisie and UEFA’s Europa League (UEL).

He’s also been great on the international stage. He also has ties to South Korea. Kudus was called up to the Ghana national team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In the second match of Group H against South Korea, he scored a multi-goal, game-winning goal to lead Ghana to victory.

Kudus is on the verge of joining West Ham. Last season, the Hammers won the Europa Conference League (UECL) but finished 14th in the league. Koudou will add another attacking option to David Moyes’ squad.
