Everton’s missed opportunity: Financial constraints halted Mohammed Kudus deal

Everton feels that had their finances been in better shape, they may have been able to sign Mohammed Kudus, who is currently a star for West Ham.

Everton was the frontrunner in the race to sign Kudus following his impressive breakthrough at Ajax.

However, the Merseyside club’s financial situation has significantly deteriorated, with a points deduction and an ongoing takeover saga further destabilizing the club.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Brighton also expressed interest in the talented attacker. However, it was West Ham who finalized the deal in the summer of 2023, paying £38million for his services.

Mohammed Kudus, now a key player for the Hammers, has scored 11 goals and provided four assists in 34 appearances in the 2023-24 campaign.

Kudus is currently out of action due to a knee injury. He is likely to return to action on 30th March according to reports in England.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian international, under contract until June 2028 with an option for an additional year, has seen his value rise to nearly £43million, as per Transfermarkt.
