Former Dutch defender turned football analyst, Hans Kraay, believes Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus is a natural successor to in-demand Ryan Gravenberch.
Hans Kraay insists Kudus, who has been unlucky with injuries, has lost his position to the Dutch midfielder at Ajax but adds the Eredivisie champions could capitalize by selling Gravenberch.
Gravenberch has popped up on the radar of several top clubs including Manchester United, Juventus and Barcelona.
“That kid is so unlucky with injuries,” Kraay told ESPN.
“I think he is the natural successor to Gravenberch,” he continues. “I already know that a lot of people will now think I’m crazy. They think he is a number ten or hanging left winger.
“But just before he got injured, Kudus was often the first point of contact. Gravenberch does that great too, of course. you sell it immediately for forty million, I name it, you already have Kudus. Well done, Overmars,” concludes Kraay.
Mohammed Kudus returned from injury over the weekend and cameoed as Ajax thumped Cambuur 9-0 in the Dutch Eredivisie.
The Ghana international joined Ajax from Danish outfit FC Nordsjaelland in the summer of 2020. Last season, he won the League and Cup double.
