Arsenal and Spurs target Mohammed Kudus is out-dribbling Messi and Mbappe

Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are incredible dribblers, but reported Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur target Mohammed Kudus is out-dribbling both of them at the World Cup.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian was one of the stars of the group stages in Qatar. His performances earned him a ton of plaudits, and he’s now a wanted man ahead of the January transfer window.

Arsenal and Spurs target Mohammed Kudus is out-dribbling Messi and Mbappe

Ghana weren’t too bad at the World Cup in Qatar, but they just couldn’t get the job done. Defeats to Portugal and Uruguay killed their dream and the Black Stars finished at the bottom of their group.

That, however, hasn’t made people ignore Kudus’ performances.

The 22-year-old, branded as an incredible player, impressed everyone with his displays, and he was quite comfortably his country’s best player at the World Cup this year.

His quality on the ball, movement and even his shooting are what has made him a wanted man, but what caught our attention is how brilliant a dribbler he really is.

Stats from Fbref reveal that Kudus’ dribble success rate – 66.6 per cent – is so good that it puts PSG superstars Messi (50 per cent) and Mbappe (44.8 per cent) to shame.

No wonder numerous clubs are keen to sign him.

Following his brilliant showing in Qatar, reports have revealed that Arsenal, Tottenham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Everton are all interested, with 90min claiming that the two North London clubs and Eddie Howe’s side have even enquired about the Ajax star.

The outlet further reveals that European giants Borussia Dortmund, PSG, Lyon, Napoli and Atletico Madrid are also interested in signing the Ghanaian.

Ajax are reportedly demanding over £30 million to sell Kudus – more than twice as much as what they wanted for him last summer when Everton tried to sign him.

It’s clear to see why Arsenal and Spurs want to sign Kudus, but with so many clubs across Europe interested, it will definitely not be easy.
