Fabrizio Romano provides update on Spurs and Everton-linked Mohammed Kudus

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Everton have been overtaken by other clubs in the race for rumoured Tottenham target Mohammed Kudus.

Kudus only played three games at the World Cup, with Ghana being eliminated at the group stage but the attacking midfielder showed just why he is so highly rated, scoring twice in Qatar (Transfermarkt).

The 22-year-old has reportedly caught Tottenham’s attention, with The Sun claiming at the start of this month that Spurs were eyeing a move for him in January.

The North London club’s interest in the midfielder has subsequently been backed up by Calciomercato.it, who stated two weeks ago that Antonio Conte’s men want to beat Juventus and AC Milan to the Ajax star.

It was Everton who allegedly came closest to signing Kudus in the summer, with The Daily Mirror reporting at the time that the Toffees had agreed on a deal with Ajax for the Ghanaian before the Eredivisie giants changed their mind and pulled the plug.

Romano has now revealed that the attacking midfielder is exploring other options beyond Everton.

He told Caughtoffside about Kudus: “Everton were one step away from signing him in August, then the deal collapsed as Ajax didn’t want to sell also him after Antony, Lisandro, Gravenberch and more. Everton are no longer the favourites, he’s also exploring more options.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Kudus would be a dream signing for Spurs as his ceiling is higher than the likes of Weston McKennie and Ruslan Malinovsky. However, the 22-year-old might seek assurances regarding regular game time, which I do not think Conte will be able to provide.
