Liverpool could sign Mohammed Kudus for a knockdown price

Liverpool might attempt to sign Mohammed Kudus for less than his £85 million release clause, as some factors favour them.

According to Football Transfers, Liverpool could potentially make a move for Mohammed Kudus for less than his £85 million release clause this summer. The Ghanaian attacker will have an exit clause active next summer, but the Reds might take advantage of West Ham’s situation to bring the winger for a ‘knocked down price.’

Mohammed Kudus available for ‘knockdown price’?

Liverpool are eager to buy a winger as they might anticipate some uncertainties surrounding Mohamed Salah’s future. There are a few doubts raised by multiple outlets about Saudi sides coming back for the Egyptian this summer; instead, many have predicted they might do so next summer when he becomes a free agent.

In any case, Liverpool are planning for a succession plan for the winger, and have been interested in Mohammed Kudus to replace him for the longer term. The West Ham man is not an easy target to acquire as the operation will involve Liverpool shelling out significant sums of money.

There have been reports of a release clause in Kudus’ contract, which the current story insists is true and stands at £85 million. However, the clause only becomes active next summer, as the report states Liverpool might attempt a move in this window for a price lesser than the original clause in his deal.

The story does detail why West Ham will want to sell him for less, but there are doubts whether Liverpool will get any preferential treatment in reducing the price for Kudus. The Ghanaian has been splendid for the Hammers, and overall, this season, he has 25 goals and assists, including a few for former side Ajax.

Why will West Ham sell Kudus on the cheap?

The report points towards their potential loss with the Lucas Paqueta issue after the Brazilian was charged for illegal betting. The problems have led to Manchester City cooling their interest, meaning the Hammers will lose out on a massive payday with this transfer.

Hence, the report suggests that West Ham will probably agree to sell Kudus for a ‘knocked down’ price. In all seriousness, while Liverpool and a host of other sides are keen on the winger, the Hammers are unlikely to offer discounts on his sale, especially considering how important a player he has been for them in the previous campaign.
