Liverpool set to trigger release clause of Ghana star Mohammed Kudus

Published on: 12 May 2024

English football powerhouse Liverpool are making significant moves in the transfer market, reportedly poised to activate an £85 million release clause to secure the services of Ghanaian sensation Mohammed Kudus from West Ham United.

The news, brought forward by respected journalist Ibrahim Sannie Daara, suggests that negotiations between the two clubs are progressing swiftly, with Liverpool keen to finalize the deal and secure personal terms with the player.

The Merseyside club sees the 23-year-old as a vital addition to their squad, particularly with the impending arrival of Dutch coach Arne Slot, who is known to hold the former Ajax player in high regard.

With Liverpool's ambitions clear, the next few days will be pivotal in determining whether the deal will come to fruition.

Despite Liverpool's interest, other European heavyweights including Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain have also expressed preliminary interest in acquiring Kudus's services.

The 23-year-old midfielder has been a standout performer for West Ham since his arrival from Ajax last summer, amassing an impressive tally of 13 goals across all competitions, including seven in the Premier League, accompanied by six assists in 32 appearances.
