West Ham fans left terrified as Saudi Arabians look to sign their star player this Summer.

While there’s certainly arguments to be had about whether the rules are right or not, PSR and FFP have undoubtedly been brought in to stop another Manchester City-esque rise to the top from happening.

Unfortunately, this has opened the door for some of the richest countries in the world to get a foot in the door by signing anyone they please. We’ve seen it previously with China, but now it’s even worse with Saudi Arabia.

It seems like no club is safe from losing their players to the Middle East and West Ham may be the latest to suffer this fate. Much to the dismay of the Hammers, it’s their star player Mohammed Kudus that has been subject to interest according to ESPN.

Al Ittihad have already signed players like Karim Benzema and N’golo Kante, but signing a real youth prospect who has the world at his feet would be a shock.

Obviously it would be surprising if Kudus did want to go to a league that lacks any sort of prestige, but the money may be too much for him to resist. The only possible positive for West Ham is that they would undoubtedly get an absolutely monstrous payday but, even then, not many would want to see him leave no matter the price.
