Mohammed Kudus: Chelsea agreed deal with me before I joined West Ham

Mohammed Kudus’ agent Jennifer Mendelewitsch has revealed that the player agreed on a deal with Chelsea before ultimately joining West Ham United.

Kudus was a target of several clubs last summer, but only West Ham managed to reach an agreement with Ajax Amsterdam and signed the 23-year-old for a £38 million fee.

Mendelewitsch has said that Chelsea were first to agree a deal with Kudus, but they tabled a very low offer to Ajax, which was rejected. The Blues never returned with an improved bid, and Mendelewitsch believes that this was because they were more focused on signing Moises Caicedo.

Chelsea’s low offer

According to Mendelewitsch, Chelsea’s offer to Ajax for Kudus was around £17 million. This was considered to be a very low offer for a player who had just scored 11 goals and provided four assists in the Eredivisie last season.

Ajax rejected Chelsea’s offer, and the Blues never returned with an improved bid. This led to Kudus becoming frustrated, as he was keen to join a bigger club.

West Ham step in

West Ham eventually stepped in and agreed a £38 million deal with Ajax for Kudus. This was a much more acceptable offer for the Dutch club, and Kudus was finally able to get his move to the Premier League.

Kudus’ impact at West Ham

Kudus has made a bright start to his West Ham career. He has scored two goals in the Europa League and one goal in the Premier League, despite not yet starting a Premier League game.

Kudus is a versatile player who can play in a number of positions, including attacking midfield, central midfield, and on the wing. He is a creative player with good dribbling and passing ability. He is also a good finisher, as evidenced by his goalscoring record.

West Ham fans are excited about the potential of Kudus, and they believe that he can become a key player for the club in the future.

It is interesting to learn that Chelsea agreed a deal with Kudus before he joined West Ham. It is unclear why Chelsea did not make a better offer for Kudus, but it is possible that they were reluctant to spend a lot of money on a player from the Eredivisie who had not yet proven himself in the Premier League and enough in the Champions League.

West Ham fans will be glad that Chelsea did not make a better offer for Kudus, as he has been a good signing for the club so far. Kudus is a versatile and talented player, and he has the potential to become a key player for West Ham in the future.

Our thoughts

It is worth noting that Chelsea have a history of making low offers for players. In recent years, they have been accused of being unwilling to pay the market value for players.

This is one of the reasons why Chelsea have been so successful in the transfer market in recent years. They have been able to buy players for less than they are worth, and then sell them on for a profit.

However, Chelsea’s low-offer strategy can also backfire. In the case of Kudus, it is clear that Chelsea’s low offer was not enough to convince Ajax to sell the player.

It is also worth noting that West Ham were willing to pay a much higher fee for Kudus than Chelsea were. This shows that West Ham are more ambitious than Chelsea at the moment.

West Ham are a club that is on the rise, and they are trying to build a squad that can compete for European qualification. Chelsea, on the other hand, are a club that is in transition. They are trying to rebuild their squad after losing several key players in recent years.

It will be interesting to see how Kudus’ career develops at West Ham. He has the potential to become one of the best players in the Premier League, and he could help West Ham to achieve their goals.
