Could Mohammed Kudus Be The Answer?

With the World Cup now in full swing, there will be various names touted as players the Reds should sign. With the recent news that our recruitment department will soon be reshaped, it just adds to the on going saga of new ownership and how the club will operate in a few months time. For the moment however, Liverpool need to remain both proactive and decisive in the transfer market, and add at least one body to the midfield group as soon as the January market opens up. Though this particular link is more of a forward thinking player, perhaps he is someone that could be moulded into that dynamic RCM / RM role that has been in question this season.

Mohammed Kudus is the Ghanaian international that has caught the eye in recent weeks, and his name is just another to add to the fan base wanted list. His current employers are of course Ajax, and he was a sub when Liverpool recently travelled to the Dutch capital in the group stages of the Champions League. That night the away side walked away with a comprehensive 0-3 victory, but it will have done little to dampen the hype around the number 20 midfielder. His performance and goal in the Anfield match up would have been noted, perhaps in a similar way to that of Takumi Minamino once upon a time.

With 98 senior appearances and a very impressed 28 goals thus far, the 22 year old has really started to make a name for himself. His international pedigree is also in the ascendancy with 20 games and 7 goals for Ghana. Only this week saw him net twice against South Korea, making them real candidates to qualify from the group stage.

At 5ft 9 inches tall, the former Nordsj√¶lland player is not the dominant figure we might desire in midfield, but could become the long term project that is adept in a number of positions. With a skill set and on ball ability that would easily mesh with our group of attackers, he could offer that offensive threat from either the flanks or attacking midfield positions that have often been lacking. The Reds’ inability to penetrate regularly this season has been caused by a number of factors, and in Kudus there may just be that exciting initiative to add to an often times predictable pattern of play.

Though more defensive aware players are also needed, there are clearly going to have to be a number of additions over the coming windows. With James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Naby Keita all set to leave this summer, there really has to be a keen eye on midfield regeneration, but one more attacking asset would really be a smart move also. The likely names will continue to be mentioned, but with the winter sales getting close, the name Mohammed Kudus may just be one to keep an eye on.

Ghana next play Uruguay in their final group stage contest, and a win will see them through the the knock out stages. The World Cup can be a huge platform for young and exciting players, and if this Liverpool linked starlet can reproduce once more, we may well see this him at the forefront of his nation’s success, and possibly ours too.
