Liverpool has already been told personality Mohammed Kudus would bring to dressing room

Liverpool has already been told by West Ham United forward Michael Antonio what Mohamed Kudus would bring to the dressing room if he arrived at Anfield. The Ghanian playmaker has been linked with a summer transfer to the Reds recently.

Kudus arrived in the Premier League last summer after joining West Ham on a five-year deal. The Hammers paid a fee in the region of $46.4million (€43m/£37m) to secure his signing from Eredivisie side Ajax.

The 23-year-old has since enjoyed an impressive first campaign in English football, scoring seven goals and adding six assists. West Ham currently sits in ninth place in the Premier League.

It is form that has since sparked the interest of top clubs across Europe, with Liverpool reportedly among them. According to Ghana Soccer Net, the Reds will look to sign Kudus this summer after the arrival of the new boss Arne Slot. The 45-year-old has already come up against Kudus, when Feyenoord faced Ajax.

The report went on to state that Liverpool had a long-term interest in the player and will now look to beat powerhouses such as Manchester City and Real Madrid to the signing. According to The Athletic's David Ornstein, Kudus has a $106m (£85m/€98m) release clause in his current deal with West Ham.

His teammate Antonio has since revealed what Kudus is like behind the scenes amid the links to Liverpool, offering an insight into what he could bring to the dressing room if he did arrive. “He’s quiet to be fair," Antonio told The Mirror.

"In the changing room, he’s not bringing much but he’s bringing enough on the pitch so he doesn’t need to bring anything to the changing room. I’m (loud) enough myself." says: Kudus would command a substantial fee and it remains to be seen if any club would be willing to pay it. Kudus has shown his versatility at West Ham and can play out wide and through the middle, as a centre forward or deeper. It could be a smart signing for Liverpool to consider this summer if Mohamed Salah or Luis Díaz is to depart.
