Mohammed Kudus is following Antony’s example to force a transfer by refusing to train on Wednesday, according to Dutch journalist Mike Verweij.
The midfielder has initially agreed personal terms with Everton, but the deal is still waiting Ajax’s approval in order to complete a move to the Toffees.
The Ghana international is looking to leave Ajax after being demoted to the bench despite his pre-season exploits. With the FIFA 2022 world cup looming, the talented younger is ready to leave Ajax on loan as he seeks regular playing time.
Everton are interested in taking the player on loan until the end of the season before they make a move for a permanent deal.
Mohammed Kudus on Everton’s Radar.
Kudus has played 46 matches for the Dutch giants since his move from Denmark, scoring six goals and providing four assists even though he was affected by a knee injury.
Having fully recovered from injury the youngster has been in blistering form scoring four goals in four pre-season appearances sparking hopes that he could play a key role in the club’s matches this season.
However, the playmaker has been consigned to the bench since the start of the season making a combined total of 24 minutes in his four league appearances for the club.
Everton close to signing three midfielders before the deadline day.
Everton manager Frank Lampard seems to be hitting the jackpot in their pursuit to sign midfielders on 31 August as there’s a chance that they can finalise moves for a trio.
The first one is the long-awaited return of Idrissa Gueye who never felt at home in Paris as he’s all but set to be announced as a Toffees player.

Manchester United midfielder James Garner is also set to follow him through the door and now it seems like another midfielder could be in the building.

Kudus has been on the Toffees’ radar for a while but with less than 48 hours to go before the deadline, he looks to be taking matters into his own hands.
