Former PL star backs rumoured Spurs target to evolve into ‘world-class player’

Former Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng is convinced that rumoured Tottenham target Mohammed Kudus is on course to becoming one of the best in the world in his position.

Kudus’ stock has continued to rise rapidly over the last six months in light of his displays for club and country.

The midfielder has found the back of the net 15 times across all competitions for Ajax so far this season and he was also one of the most impressive young talents on show at the World Cup in Qatar.

Ahead of the January transfer window, The Sun reported that Tottenham were considering making a move for the 22-year-old. 

Spurs’ interest in the Ghanaian was also backed up by Calciomercato.it, who talked up the possibility of the Lilywhites beating Juventus and AC Milan to the youngster’s signature.

Kudus ended up staying put at Johan Cruijff Arena last month but there is no doubt that he will be one of the most sought-after players across the continent in the summer if he maintains his current form until the end of the season.

Boateng believes that the Ajax star only needs minor tweaks to his game to evolve into a world-class player.

The 47-year-old told Algemeen Dagblad about Kudus: “In his technique, dribbling and power, Mo is not lacking at all. If he lets his teammate score more often with a cross or through ball, Mo can really become a world-class player in the next 18 to 24 months.”

Kudus would arguably be a better fit for Conte’s system than someone like James Maddison, given the Ghanaian’s engine and physicality.

However, the 22-year-old will not come cheap as there could well be a major bidding war for his signature at the end of the season.
