This comes after the youngster took the world by storm on Monday when he scored two goals to help the Black Stars defeat South Korea and keep their chances of reaching the tournament’s knockout stages alive.
The 22-year-old midfielder for Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam was named the game’s best player on Monday, attracting global attention to the midfielder’s abilities.
A top English newspaper named the talented player as the player to recruit after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The British newspaper ‘Mirror’ named eight players who will be coveted by numerous professional teams in the English Premier League following the Asian tournament.
“Cristiano Ronaldo has recently been in the market, but there are more interesting young players,” the Mirror said of Kudus.
“Last summer, Kudus was on the verge of signing a contract with Everton of the English Premier League (EPL),” he said. “There’s a lot of interest in it,” he said.
“Several EPL clubs will be interested in the 22-year-old Kudus,” the Mirror reported.
The British newspaper ‘Guardian’ also named Kudus as one of eight prospects for the World Cup in Qatar.
“Kudus, who has good personal skills, can beat defenders even in tight spaces,” the Guardian wrote.
Kudus, a midfielder for Ajax in the Netherlands, has appeared in six Uefa Champions League games this season, scoring four goals and assisting on two others.
Kudus broke through the left side without hesitation and raised a sharp cross to help Andre Ayew (Al Sadd) equalize in the 28th minute of the second half as Ghana lost 0-1 to Portugal in the opening match of the World Cup in Qatar.
He also made an impact with a menacing mid-range shot that pierced the Portuguese defence.
