27 August (Reuters) Mohammed Kudus, a Ghanaian striker, has been acquired by West Ham United from Ajax Amsterdam on a five-year deal, the two clubs announced on Sunday.

Ajax stated that they had reached an agreement on a transfer price of 43 million euros ($46.44 million), which “can increase through variables”.

“This is the moment I’ve been waiting for, and I’m overjoyed to be here. However, I want to continue; it doesn’t stop here,” Kudus stated in a statement.

The 23-year-old spent three years with Ajax, where he twice won the Eredivisie (2021 and 2022) and won the Dutch Cup in 2021. During that time, he made 87 appearances, scoring 27 goals and dishing out 12 assists.

At the 2017 World Cup in Qatar, the Ghanaian international played 24 times for his nation, scoring four goals while participating in all three group stage games.

In addition to former Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and former Ajax teammate and Mexico international Edson Alvarez, Kudus will become the third significant acquisition for David Moyes’ squad this summer.
