Barcelona Sporting Director, Jordi Cruyff, reveals the Catalan club has been tracking Ghana midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, for more than a year now.
Barcelona have now joined the likes of Liverpool and other top Premier League sides who are reportedly interested in signing the Ajax attacker.
“We’ve been tracking Mohammed Kudus for more than one year. We can’t say now that Barça want Kudus… but he’s attracting interest,” Jordi told Spanish outlet RAC 1.
The 22-year-old has been playing more as a false nine this season for Ajax instead of his preferred number ten position.
Cruyff adds that he has been following the discussions in the Netherlands about which position the Right to Dream Academy graduate should play.
“He’s scoring goals and in Holland, they discuss a lot about his position, so yes – I know him well,” he added.
After struggling for game time at the start of the season, Kudus has been on fire for the Dutch giants since being played as a false nine, scoring 10 goals in 21 games in all competitions.
He is also lighting up the 2022 World Cup with a brilliant display against Portugal and bagging a historic brace against South Korea, and will next play against Uruguay on Friday.
Mohammed Kudus will be integral for Ghana if they are to get past the South Americans and qualify for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup.
