Like I said: I replace your reality with my own !!
Pretty sure Kudus is not easily available in January. And you're dealing with Ajax, and he has 2,5 years left in contract. Also not experienced player, he has only 1700 minutes in Dutch league, and 2400 minutes in Danish league.Not completely convinced by SMS, even at that 8m GBP loan fee.
Rather go for a more versatile, energetic midfielder like Kudus, who gives us options at 6, 8 and 10.
And this injury record isn't too enticing to me. Even if one injury is fractured rib. The one's from 2021 are concerning with so little experience at top level.
I bet he would cost 50-70 million euros from Ajax this January. Next summer likely 40-50 million if he doesn't renew.
Can he play #6?
