Nice target Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus

L’Équipe are reporting that OGC Nice are closely following Ajax’s Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus (21), whose last season at the Dutch champions was blighted by injury. 

Nice, who are without a sporting director following the sudden departure of Julien Fournier early this week, have identified the midfield as an area in need of improvement. Kudus has now emerged as a target for the Côte d’Azur club and could be available for €12m. Prior to joining Ajax for €9m in 2020, he was linked with a move to both Rennes and Strasbourg. 

The Ghanaian international has a contract that runs through until 2025 but saw his last season in the Netherlands heavily impacted by injuries. He missed 6 games with an ankle injury before a fractured rib saw him sidelined for a further 13 games. As a result, he featured in only 16 Eredivisie matches and played fewer than 500 minutes.
