Kudus has impressed in his first season in the Premier League, leading to Liverpool being linked with a summer move for him.

Speaking on The Athletic FC podcast, the reliable David Ornstein said that the winger has a release in his current Hammers deal, but did not specify the amount:

“In terms of Kudus, there’s a release clause too. He’s newer to the club, he’s done fantastically well so far, I suspect he’d be looking to stay for a bit longer.

“But we don’t know, there’s always interest in him, multiple clubs showed that before he ended up joining West Ham.

“I think we reported on the likes of Arsenal, definitely Brighton. Manchester United have been rumoured admirers of him for a long time and many others. Chelsea were another one too.”

Kudus could be a superb signing for Liverpool – he has 13 goals this season – being viewed as a long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah.
