Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam are yet to receive an official bid from clubs who have shown interest in Mohammed Kudus and other top-performing players of the team according to the club’s director of football affairs Sven Mislintat.
Kudus’ explosive display for both club and country has sparked massive interest among top clubs with English outfits Manchester United, Newcastle United, Arsenal and Liverpool all believed to be aiming to strike a deal with the sensational forward.
A few weeks ago, the Athletic reported as confirmed by the player’s agent that, Kudus had rejected a one-year extension of his stay with the Dutch giants with the 22-year-old aiming to feature for a new club in the upcoming season.
Mislintat, who has begun plans to find suitable replacements for Kudus and other players who are on their way out of the club, has revealed that, despite the increasing demand for Kudus in media reports, there are no significant offers to intensify negotiations.

“Lorenzo Lucca is leaving, there is no alternative for Jurriën Timber. Each position must be occupied twice, so we are short in numbers. And then it depends on the market who stays. It is clear which players are most attractive to top international clubs. I’m thinking of a trio: Mohammed Kudus, Edson Álvarez, and Timber”, he said to Voetbal-International.
“It just depends on the market what will happen. I know of interest from clubs, but there are no offers yet. So there is nothing concrete. There are talks, but we have to wait and see what will happen. I can tell you that the budget we have to spend is excellent. I am very happy with that,” concludes Mislintat.
The former Nordjaelland player has scored 22 goals with five assists in all competitions this season.
