Brighton and Hove Albion have successfully reached a significant agreement with Ajax to secure the services of midfielder Mohammed Kudus for a substantial fee of £39 million. The talented midfielder is seen as a potential replacement for Moises Caicedo, who has been a major target for Chelsea during the current summer transfer window. Despite facing four rejections for their previous bids, Chelsea remains determined and is reportedly preparing to make a fresh and substantial offer of £90 million for Caicedo.
Mohammed Kudus had previously attracted interest from Arsenal earlier in the transfer window. However, the talented player is now on the verge of joining Brighton as they look to bolster their midfield options.
According to credible sources such as The Athletic, the deal between Brighton and Ajax includes an initial fee of £34.5 million, setting a new club record for the Seagulls. Additionally, the transfer cost may potentially rise to £39 million with add-ons, showcasing the importance of Kudus to Brighton’s future plans.
With both clubs seemingly closing in on their respective targets, the football world eagerly anticipates the finalization of these transfers, adding further excitement to an eventful summer transfer window.
Brighton and Hove Albion are also making significant progress in finalizing personal terms with the Ghanaian international, Mohammed Kudus. The talented midfielder has already turned down a one-year contract extension offer from his current club, Ajax.
Having spent the last three seasons in Amsterdam, Kudus has showcased his goal-scoring abilities, netting 23 goals in 84 appearances. His versatility is a valuable asset as he primarily operates as an attacking midfielder, but he can also excel on the right wing or as a striker.
This potential signing of Kudus by Brighton is a boost for Chelsea’s hopes of securing Moises Caicedo’s services. Despite their latest bid worth £75 million, along with an additional £5 million, being rejected, Chelsea remains eager to add Caicedo to their squad. The situation is expected to unfold with further developments as both clubs continue their pursuit of these talented midfielders.
It appears that Caicedo is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge and has expressed his desire to join Chelsea this summer, stating that he “can’t say no” to the opportunity. His willingness to join the Blues could play a significant role in potential negotiations and could potentially influence the final decision regarding his transfer to Chelsea.
