West Ham United have finally completed the signing of Ghanaian international Mohammed Kudus for £38.2m on a five-year contract.
The player becomes the club’s second acquisition this week, following the capture of Konstantinos Mavropanos from Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart just five days ago.
This is the second time that the Hammers have acquired a player from Ajax this summer, as his former teammate Edson Álvarez finally signed for the East Londoners on August 10.
It appeared that this was yet another difficult deal for the club to get done, as at one point, it appeared that negotiations had stalled. However, as with the transfer of James Ward-Prowse, senior figures involved in the deal managed to rekindle the club’s interest and a move was able to be finalised.
There are likely to be more deals done both in and out of East London before the window closes at 11pm on September 1. If news of any more moves are available, you can read about them here.
