English Premier League side, West Ham United are on the verge of agreeing a deal with Ajax to sign attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus, per a report from the Athletic.
The Premier League club have submitted an official offer worth €41m plus €3m in add-ons (£35m + £2.56m) in a deal that would include a 10% sell-on clause.
Per the Athletic, the proposal is expected to be accepted by Ajax and personal terms are in place for the 23-year-old to sign a five-year deal with the option of a sixth.
Should the move materialize, West Ham have seen off competition from Brighton & Hove Albion who also reached an agreement in principle to sign Kudus earlier this month, and also Arsenal and Chelsea who both made enquires on the player last month.
Kudus who joined Ajax in 2020 from Danish fold Nordsjaelland and is under contract with the club until 2025 is keen to leave, having rejected a one-year extension in April this year.
The Ghana international has spent three seasons in Amsterdam, scoring 16 goals in 63 Eredivisie matches, with 11 of those goals coming last season.
Mohammed Kudus has also scored 7 goals in 24 appearances for Ghana, including two against South Korea in the group stages of the World Cup in Qatar in November.
