Mohammed Kudus breaks silence amid Arsenal transfer link with cryptic social media post

Arsenal are interested in Ajax attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus and have been joined by Chelsea in the race for the Ghana international.

The 22-year-old wants to leave the Eredivisie and has taken to his Instagram stories this morning to drop a cryptic post.

Kudus posted the lyrics to a song titled “lonely at the top”, and it means something given that no concrete bid has gone in for him.

Arsenal reached out to Ajax a fortnight ago to be informed about Kudus, but they are yet to table a bid.

Chelsea are close to agreeing personal terms with the attacker but have not submitted any offer either.

The Gunners want to bolster their attack but are concentrating on departures right now.

They have spent £208 million on three players so far, and while Chief Executive Officer Vinai Venkatesham has suggested they could be done with transfers this summer, Arsenal are open to signing a midfielder and attacker once funds become available following sales.

Kudus can play in central midfield and on the right wing, so signing the Ajax ace could help the North London club solve two problems.

He ended last season with 17 goals and three assists across 43 games for club and country and will fancy his chances of impressing in the Premier League.

His international teammate Thomas Partey would most likely have discussed Arsenal with him, and the midfielder could be crucial in helping to convince Kudus to join the Gunners ahead of Chelsea.

The Blues will not be playing in Europe next term and are also well-stocked in attack and midfield, so the Ajax star could be keen to move to North London instead.

Nothing is happening right now, and with the new Premier League season starting soon, Kudus wants his future resolved as soon as possible.
