Barcelona Sporting Director, Jordi Cruyff has confirmed that Ghanaian sensation Mohammed Kudus has caught the attention of his out.
Following explosive displays with Ajax and also with the Ghana national team at the ongoing World Cup, Mohammed Kudus who’s a scorer of 2 goals and provider of an assist at the Mundial has become a target for most clubs and one of those clubs is Barcelona, Sporting Director of the club has confirmed.
“I saw him play a year ago and have followed his progress at Ajax,” Cruyff explained to RAC1. “But we’re not at the point of saying ‘Barca want this player,’ not at all.
“He is a player that has caught the attention with his performances and goals at the World Cup. He’s caught my attention, especially because there is a debate in the Netherlands about his position, whether he’s an advanced midfielder or a forward.”
Despite the interest, Cruyff added that Barcelona are not currently in a position to afford any signings in January, anyway.
“Right now we cannot sign in January,” he added. “The fair play situation has changed for a cumulation of reasons.
“It is not a question of if a player goes it is all solved, either. There are different solutions. But we are clear what we want to do if we can sign in January,” he added.
Kudus who was close to joining Everton last summer is also monitored by a number of top European clubs, the likes of Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle United, Manchester United, Napoli, Lyon and so on have all reportedly shown interest.
