In the eyes of Joe Cole, Mohammed Kudus is the shining star among West Ham’s summer signings. The former West Ham playmaker believes that Kudus has the potential to become a “top player” for the club. Kudus has already won over the West Ham fanbase with his performances, with one supporter even going as far as traveling to Ghana to watch him play for his national team.
David Moyes secured Kudus’ signature in the summer for a reported fee of £38 million, luring him away from Ajax. The 23-year-old has made an immediate impact, scoring eight goals in 16 appearances for his new side. This is an impressive return for a wide player in a team currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League.
While Cole is highly impressed with Kudus, he also highlighted two other signings that have caught his eye. Speaking to fellow TNT Sports expert Jermaine Jenas, Cole praised James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez. He described Ward-Prowse as brilliant and emphasized the importance of watching him week in and week out to truly appreciate his abilities. As for Alvarez, Cole commended his fantastic performances and his ability to cover ground as a midfielder.
However, it was Kudus who Cole singled out as the player to watch. He compared him to Antony, another former Ajax player who has struggled to settle in the Premier League. Cole believes that Kudus’ power and skill set make him well-suited for the transition from the Eredivisie to the Premier League. In Cole’s eyes, Kudus is destined to become a top player for West Ham.
Overall, Cole is impressed with West Ham’s recruitment strategy and believes that Kudus, along with Ward-Prowse and Alvarez, will play crucial roles in the club’s European aspirations.
