Brighton reportedly consider Ajax’s Mohammed Quds to be their top target this summer.
It comes as the 22-year-old, who joined the Eredivisie side in 2020, is likely to leave this summer after turning down a one-year contract extension with Ajax in April.
A number of different Premier League sides, as well as Manchester United, Newcastle and Chelsea, are said to have been interested in the attacking midfielder, who has seemingly become uneasy with the Dutch outfit, following a prominent position as manager over the last 12 months, in an attempt to move to Everton. .
But according to to Fabrizio RomanoBrighton now have a ‘concrete interest’ in the keeper, who has been capped 21 times nationally, and has made him a ‘main target this summer’, but also admits that ‘Chelsea have had no concrete talks with him. ‘
He wrote on Twitter: ‘Understand that Mohammed Quds is one of Brighton’s main targets this summer. He is on the list, the interest is concrete. Not an easy deal but Brighton like Kudus – no specific talks with Chelsea.

Also, this is because Alexis Mack Allister (second right) left Liverpool this summer season.
The Italian journalist further explained: “Brighton have not started any talks with Teuna Koopmeiners at the moment.”
Brighton want to trade Alexis Mack Allister, who left at the beginning of June, for £35m.
And Kudus, in an equally superior position, could very well be a very good addition to Roberto De Zerbi’s side as the Seagulls additionally combined to lose Moises Caicedo.
Chelsea now seem particularly keen on signing the Ecuadorian and are preparing a brand new £80million bid to signal him, and it could happen quickly.
Todd Bailly will recoup a whopping £130m in outgoing transfers, with Kalidou Koulibaly, Cesar Azpilicueta, Matteo Kovacic, Hakim Ziyech, Edouard Mendy and Romelu Lukaku all closing in on the exits, which would help them bid for a sure Keido. , which will not pay a low cost.
Kudus has impressed for Ajax since joining in 2020, scoring 24 goals in 83 video games.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have not held any concrete talks with Quds, but are involved in a deal for Moises Caicedo and are set to improve on a bid that will be submitted very soon.
If Caicedo leaves the Amex Stadium, Brighton would certainly want some new midfielders and Kudus could be a great option.
Barely 22 years old, the Ghanaian has already won two Eredivisie titles and the Dutch Cup around the world.
This season, he played an important role in taking Ajax to the top of the league. He scored 11 goals in 30 games and also scored 4 goals in six Champions League games.
But Brighton could face strong competition from Manchester United, with Erik ten Hag previously tipping the midfielder as an exciting prospect to bring to Old Trafford.
