Nordsjaelland youth coach and former Ghana international Laryea Kingston has confirmed that budding Ghana midfielder Kudus Mohammed is on the wanted list of most big European clubs.
The former Hearts of Oak winger advised the youngster to snub other clubs and make a move to Liverpool should a deal come in.
Kudus has been in sensational form for Danish Super League outfit FC Nordsjaelland since joining from Right to Dream Academy.
The 19-year-old’s incredible display has seen him linked with a host of European sides including Liverpool, Everton, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, Newcastle, Tottenham Hotspurs etc.
“At our team FCN [FC Nordsjaelland], Kudus is one of the important players and the head coach wants to build the team around him. Most of the games that he’s played, he did very well. And now most of the big European clubs are chasing him, so it’s good for him and it’s good for the country as well,” Kingston told Goal.
“The only thing is he should consider a club where he feels he could play week in week out. He’s young, so when he goes and he’s playing, it’s going to build his confidence but when he goes and he doesn’t get playing time, that’s when his confidence goes down and his performance will drop.
“Looking at Newcastle and Everton, for me I think Everton will fit his game because they give a lot of young players chances. Even the English FA mostly pick youth players at Everton [for national teams], so they will help him develop.
“I will prefer Everton but if Liverpool comes in, they are a big club with guaranteed Champions League football, I think that [Liverpool] will help him a lot more than he will get at the other two clubs [Everton and Newcastle].
“If I am in his shoes and I’m to pick between Liverpool, Everton and Newcastle, I know it’s going to be tough at Liverpool but I will choose Liverpool. Liverpool may already have a lot of good players at his position but so long as they want him, then they know what they want to do with him”, he added.
Kudus joined Nordsjaelland from Ghanaian feeder club Right to Dream Academy.
The youngster has been in scintillating form this season, making 21 league appearances, starting 18 of those games, scoring 10 times and providing an assist.
