Arsenal have identified versatile Ajax forward Mohammed Kudus as a target this summer, but are looking to offload players to create space for him in their squad, as per Daily Mail.
The Gunners are keen on building on their impressive 2022-23 season in which they were in the chase for the Premier League title until the final two months of the season and also secured a return to the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2017.
Arsenal are keen on Ghana international Kudus, whose versatility makes him a great target for the North London side this summer. The midfielder is also on the radar of Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea, with the Gunners keen on signing him.
The Gunners are aware that they will need to sell players in order to fund the transfer and to create space in their squad for the 22-year-old Ajax star, who was on the verge of joining Everton last summer.
Arsenal to approach Ajax for Mohammed Kudus
Kudus is capable of playing in central midfield or in a more offensive role, and can also play as a right winger or striker, as he has shown in his time as an Ajax player. The Ghanaian star is the perfect replacement for Granit Xhaka in the left central midfield role due to his attacking quality and nature as a midfielder.
The Gunners are looking to sell a number of players, including Albert Sambi Lokonga, Nicolas Pepe, Cedric Soares, Kieran Tierney, Folarin Balogun and Thomas Partey as they look to create space for the Ghanaian youngster.
Arsenal have been active this summer, spending around £200m already. They have already done business with Ajax, signing Jurrien Timber from them. They have also signed Kai Havertz and Declan Rice and are keen on adding more quality to their squad.
