According to Bild, Borussia Dortmund could challenge Tottenham Hotspur for the services of Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus.
GhanaWeb were the first to report at the start of August that Spurs held an interest in Kudus. Tottenham’s interest in the midfielder was also backed up by Ghanasoccernet, who claimed that scouts from the North London club had watched the player in action.
However, it was Everton who allegedly came closest to snapping up Kudus, with The Daily Mirror reporting at the end of the transfer window that the Toffees thought they had agreed on a deal for the Ghanaian, only for Ajax to go back on their word and block the move.
The 22-year-old has started the season in fine form, having scored eight goals in 12 appearances so far across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
If Bild’s latest update is to be believed, Dortmund are eyeing Kudus as an option in case Youssoufa Moukoko refuses to extend his contract, which currently ends in June of next year.
The report claims the German club could use the help of Ghana manager Otto Addo, who spent a large part of his career in Westfalenstadion, to usher the player to the club.
Spurs Web Opinion
Given how well Kudus has done so far this season, one would expect plenty of clubs across Europe to show interest in the midfielder in January. Perhaps Fabio Paratici and co will be ruing the fact that they did not get a deal done for the 22-year-old in the summer.
