Back in the summer, Everton came very close to signing Mohammed Kudus from Ajax, a player Liverpool are now interested in, writes the HITC.
It was Paul Joyce of The Times who claimed that the Toffees were all set to sign the Ghana international, with Voetbal International even claiming that he missed training in an attempt to force the move.
Eventually, Ajax held firm, as they didn’t want to lose more of their best assets after already cashing in on Antony, Sebastien Haller, Lisandro Martinez and Ryan Gravenberch, to name a few.
Well, Frank Lampard may have to give up hope of signing Kudus now, as Sports World Ghana believe Liverpool have entered the race for his signature.
According to iNews, the Toffees still want to sign the 22-year-old in January, but from our point of view, we can’t see him choosing Everton over Liverpool, given the pulling power of Jürgen Klopp and the offer of Champions League football.
Therefore, Liverpool joining the race for Kudus will surely anger Everton.
What a game! 🤩

In truth, even Liverpool may struggle to sign Kudus if he keeps pulling up trees at the World Cup, with his performances for Ghana even catching the eye of Real Madrid – according to SPORT in Spain.
The Ajax No.20 has scored two goals in two games so far in Qatar, having already netted ten goals in 21 appearances in the first half of the season.
If you’re an Everton fan feeling a bit of Déjà vu, there may be a good reason for that.
According to The Times, Everton almost signed Luis Diaz from Porto in the summer of 2021, but saw a move collapse after trying to include James Rodriguez as part of the deal.
