Arsenal and Chelsea could still yet sign Mohammed Kudus this summer with a positive update emerging despite the transfer agreement between Brighton and Ajax. Stamford Bridge appeared as the Netherlands international’s most likely destination, but interest from the Seagulls and Arsenal was always prominent with one of those teams going on to make a formal offer.

As revealed by The Athletic earlier this month, Ajax reached an agreement in principle with the Seagulls to sell Kudus for just under €40million (£34.5m). However, the deal stalled on the side of the player with Kudus’ entourage wanting to include a release clause, a desire not matched by Brighton, as per reports in the Dutch media.

Chelsea’s ongoing saga involving Moises Caicedo has seen attention shift from other targets, such as Kudus. Liverpool have seen a £110million offer accepted by Brighton for the 21-year-old, however the player himself prefers a move to west London over Merseyside.


That triple-figure proposal is yet to be matched or improved upon by Chelsea, although the plan is to do so very soon. In the meantime, Liverpool will take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with Ajax manager Maurice Steijn confirming that Kudus will also be in action this weekend despite the interest from London and agreement with Brighton.
