West Ham forward Mohammed Kudus could play a dynamic role for the club this season, it has been reported.
Our Hammers marquee signing brings a variety of qualities to the club. Blistering pace, brilliant shooting and tricky feet are only a few of his specialities.
However, one talent that may go underappreciated is his diversity. While his primary position is that of an attacking midfielder, he can play on both wings as well as potentially up top.
This range of positions may make him crucial in another long season. He can switch on the fly mid game to suit Moyes’ tactics, cover for any injuries as well as just making it tricky for opponents to know what they’re up against.
“Of course, we all know my versatility for the past years,” Kudus stated, as had been reported by GiveMeSport. “But I think the position I’ve played most spots from my actions are from the central areas, but it’s the team that’s above everyone else.”
“The position the coach feels is best for me to help the team,” he continued. “I will give my 100 percent best. Everything that I’ve played in did my best from like an attacking position, from the midfield.”
Despite not having a chance to show his quality yet, £38 million is an absolute still for a player of his quality. He already managed 9 goal involvements this season for Ajax and he’s proven he can consistently perform at an extremely high level.
Surprisingly, the club was able to beat off a lot of top clubs to secure the Ghana international’s signature, and it goes to show what an excellent signing he is.
There’s no doubt that he’s got the quality and that, given time, he will go on to achieve brilliant things. Expectations are understandably high but it’s hard to imagine a world where a player with his skill set doesn’t adapt quickly to the Premier League.
He’s already got experience in Europe, so where rotation is necessary, his ability to play almost anywhere in attack could prove key if we are to have another long and successful European tour. Mark Noble and Tim Steidten worked hard for this signing, now it’s time to see what new heights he can reach in England.
