Former West Ham star fears Mohammed Kudus could leave this summer


Former West Ham striker, Frank McAvennie, has shared his worries about the upcoming summer transfer window, fearing the possible departure of key players Mohammed Kudus and Lucas Paqueta. McAvennie’s concerns arise amid rumors suggesting that the club might sell the star duo to raise funds, especially with West Ham seeking new investors.

McAvennie, who played for both West Ham and Celtic, highlighted the importance of keeping both the Brazilian and Ghanaian stars, underlining their significant contributions to the team’s success. He stressed the need for West Ham to retain Kudus and Paqueta while also strengthening the squad with additional signings, particularly in defensive positions.

“I think we’ve got people who can score goals,” McAvennie expressed in an interview with Football Insider. “We’ve got Kudus and Paqueta… keeping those two is the biggest problem for me, I fear they will both leave, that’s what I keep hearing.”

The former striker voiced his reluctance to see West Ham part ways with Kudus and Paqueta, urging the club’s management to prioritize retaining their services while also addressing defensive weaknesses.

Amid a season marked by injuries, Brazilian midfielder Paqueta has notably contributed seven goals and seven assists across all competitions. Similarly, Ghana international Kudus has made his mark with 13 goals and five assists from 36 appearances for the club.

Kudus, in particular, has emerged as a pivotal player since joining West Ham in the summer, solidifying his position as a key asset in the squad’s lineup.
