Ghana star Mohammed Kudus has reportedly gone awol at Ajax in a bid to force the club to allow him to join Premier League side Everton FC.
Recent reports from the Nether suggests the English Premier League side are interested in bringing him to Goodison Park.
According to the report, Toffees manager Frank Lampard is a huge fan of the young playmaker and wants him in his team for the rest of the 2022-23 season.
Despite Ajax’s reluctance to allow Kudus to leave, the player has had very limited game time this season, having not started any of their three league games thus far this season in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Reports coming from the Netherlands says Kudus boycotted training in an attempt to force the Dutch champions into sanctioning his move to Everton.
Netherlands-based Telegraf journalist Mike Verweij reports that Kudus have refused to train after Ajax rebuffed Everton’s bid.
“Mohammed Kudus refuses to train and wants to go to Everton. After transfers Martinez and Antony, there is an idea that striking pays off at Ajax,” Verweij tweeted.
Kudus had a good pre-season with the Dutch giants, even scoring in each of their three friendlies played in July.
However, the former Nordsjaelland midfielder has been restricted to just 28 minutes of game time under new manager Alfred Schreuder.
And with the 2022 World Cup less than three months away, Kudus is targeting playing time in order to cement his place in the Black Stars.
