Champions League Football Lure: Mohammed Kudus, Ghanaian International, Leaning Towards Arsenal Move Despite Interest from Chelsea and Manchester United

Ghanaian international Mohammed Kudus eyes a move to Arsenal, drawn by the prospects of playing Champions League football, even though other Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United have also shown interest.

Champions League football has emerged as a decisive factor in Ghanaian star Mohammed Kudus’ prospective move to Arsenal. Although the Ajax midfielder is said to have no qualms about personal terms with the Gunners, we understand that given a choice between the North London club and Chelsea, Kudus would prefer the former.

Despite the Dutch club’s earnest efforts to retain the 22-year-old, Kudus is looking for a change this window. Arsenal has shown interest in the player, but the club’s ability to secure him hinges on their ability to offload some of their current roster, following their significant expenditure in recent times.

The Ghanaian international has also caught the attention of Manchester United, with manager Erik ten Hag considering him as an alternative to Rasmus Hojlund.

If Arsenal were to secure the necessary funds through player sales – with Kieran Tierney and Falorin Balogun speculated to be among those potentially leaving – they could find themselves in a position to table a bid for Kudus. However, this process is expected to take some time.

In weighing in on the young star’s abilities, Dutch football icon Marco van Basten voiced high praise for Kudus, even ranking him above Manchester United’s Antony, who was previously a teammate of Kudus at Ajax.

In Van Basten’s own words, “Mohammed Kudus is a much superior football player than Antony. Kudus has a superior technique, and he knows exactly what he’s doing. Antony may be quicker, but Kudus is smarter and has a better technical game. He’s a true footballer and can be deployed anywhere on the pitch, a real asset for any team. Honestly, I prefer watching Kudus to Antony.”

Last season, Kudus was close to joining Everton, although the move fell through. Now, he finds himself linked with a move to several other Premier League clubs.
