West Ham not selling Mohammed KudusAfrican footballers. West Ham United does not want to sell Mohammed Kudus this summer despite interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United. Graeme Bailey from HITC reported that these clubs are keen to sign Kudus during the summer transfer window. However, West Ham United will not consider any offers for the Ghanaian international.

Mohammed Kudus season at West Ham

During the 2023/24 season, the Ghanaian international excelled, contributing to 25 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions for Ajax and West Ham. Kudus scored 18 goals and provided seven assists. His performances have garnered interest from top clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United.

In high demand

Arsenal may position Kudus as backup for Bukayo Saka or an alternative to Gabriel Martinelli. Meanwhile, Liverpool seeks offensive reinforcement due to uncertainties surrounding Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz’s futures. As a result, the West Ham attacker has emerged as a prime target for Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s interest in Mohammed Kudus makes sense. While he prefers central positions, he’s also effective on the right flank. Chelsea, on the other hand, could greatly benefit from Kudus joining their offensive lineup.

Despite interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United in Mohammed Kudus, a summer transfer seems unlikely. Reports indicate that West Ham is firm on not selling the 23-year-old attacker.
