Liverpool made a move to sign one of Everton’s top transfer targets in the summer transfer window, according to David Ornstein.
The Lowdown: Congrats on Kudus
Right to Dream graduate Mohammed Kudus endured a stellar World Cup campaign for Ghana, scoring twice in three appearances.
Kudus has been a promising name on the world football scene since scoring 11 goals for FC Nordsjaelland in the Danish Superligaen.

Ajax, of course, replaced him after that feat, although life in Amsterdam has not always been prosperous for the rising star.
Despite being in his third season in the Eredivisie, the 22-year-old is still struggling for a starting spot, having made just five of his 14 appearances for the club in the league this season.
The latest: Ornstein’s LFC claim
In a piece looking at potential World Cup movers and shakers, Kudus features prominently in Ornstein’s report for The Athletic, with his alleged desire to leave Ajax during the transfer window January putting the clubs on alert.
Everton had agreed terms with the star on deadline day and the player even refused to train in a bid to join the Toffees, but Ornstein reveals there was also contact with Liverpool in the same window.
Kudus is said to want a move to the Premier League and sees his future as a midfielder, rather than a false-9, a role Alfred Schreuder has made him play this season.
Kudus’ contract expires in June 2025, so Ajax decide on a move and an official price.

The verdict: is it worth going?
Liverpool’s previous interest in the star is promising for a potential winter move. With Luis Diaz still injured, Jurgen Klopp is in need of reinforcements and with Kudus able to do a job in attack, he could immediately improve the squad before returning to midfield in an in-form Liverpool side.
You get the impression that a raw talent like Kudus would develop in the same way as Mane and Salah, as a couple of notable examples, under the tutelage of Klop,p who seems to be a master at developing exciting young prospects.
It would be a shrewd move for all concerned.
