Everton must now hold off Spurs and Dortmund to sign Kudus


Borussia Dortmund are now after Everton target Mohammed Kudus, with Tottenham also interested in the striker, according to Image.

The Ghanaian international had agreed personal terms for a transfer to Goodison during the previous transfer window [Fabrizio Romano, 19 August] before Ajax scrapped a deal.

He has since told NOS (September 18) that he sees the Toffees as a great opportunity and wants a move. Although he did everything he could, he was kept in Amsterdam and he has since flourished despite not being a regular starter, with eight goals and one assist.

But hopes of resurrecting the deal in January are in jeopardy, with Spurs chasing him, and now German giants Dortmund want to return to the Johan Cruyff Arena for a player described as ‘lightning fast’ and ‘an exceptional technician. with game intelligence and a nose”. for goals”, after signing Sébastien Haller this summer.

Kudus, 22, is believed to be an alternative in case teenage sensation Youssoufa Moukoko refuses to sign a contract extension at Signal Iduna Park.

Working in favor of the Yellow and Blacks is the fact that the Eredivisie striker’s national team manager Otto Addo works as a scout for the club.


Kudus scored in his third consecutive Champions League game with the opener against Napoli on Tuesday October 4, albeit more incidentally than his outstanding strikes against Rangers and Liverpool, before his side were blown away 6- 1.

Although he has played almost every minute in Europe this year, he is still often left on the bench in the league, suggesting he will push again after the World Cup.

But the more attention he attracts, the more crowded the race for him will become, and that seems to be exactly what is happening.

Although things could be very different in January, the two teams competing with Everton here are also in the Champions League which would be difficult to overcome.

Frank Lampard has his own edge in that his side were ahead of the crowd this summer and were clearly quite attractive back then, as the player himself admitted.

So if he can stage enough of a push in the Premier League to suggest this club go again, he might be able to convince the Black Stars player to complete the move on the second attempt, although the Addo connection looks worryingly favorable. for Dortmund to organize this.
