West Ham United: David Moyes must find solution as ‘significant problem’ with Mohammed Kudus flagged

David Moyes must fast find a solution as West Ham prepare to wave goodbye to Mohammed Kudus for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Ghanaian international will reunite with his homeland after West Ham’s January 2 match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Kudus might miss up to seven games for the first team, including both of United’s EFL Cup semifinal matches if they defeat Liverpool this week.

According to Malik Ouzia’s statement in a December 18 piece for The Standard, David Moyes now has to address this “significant problem.”

It would seem sense to use Jarrod Bowen on the right, where he is very comfortable, and Lucas Paqueta on the left.

Moyes must, however, choose a center-forward for that to occur. Even if Michael Antonio returns from his injury, that seems like a bad decision.

Danny Ings is not fancied by the Scotsman, meanwhile, and Divin Mubama is untested. On the face of it, the latter seems the best option.

Moyes has only a couple of weeks to decide which way he will go, because it will shape his line-ups for the best part of a month.

Kudus’ nine goals will not be easily replaced, but the Irons do at least still have some very talented attacking players in their ranks.

If Moyes does not get it right, the Irons’ season could easily crumble in front of them while Kudus is 5,000 miles away.

This was a problem United always knew they were going to encounter when signing Kudus, and one they simply must deal with.


Player having discussions to join West Ham – President reveals there’s ‘nothing on my table’ for January transfer

According to Corriere dello Sport, West Ham United is monitoring Ardon Jashari of FC Luzern as of November 30. It was also mentioned that, with a €6 million valuation, he may represent a good deal for the Premier League team.

He has played 23 games this season, mostly as a defensive midfielder, and has recorded four goals and two assists. A few other clubs, including West Ham, appear to have taken notice of the Switzerland international’s play.

The Hammers, SC Freiburg, Villarreal, and Bologna are reportedly among the teams interested in the 21-year-old, according to the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. He will “continue to shape Swiss football for a long time,” according to the publication.

Solothurner Zeitung have a report on the midfielder and their title questions whether he’ll soon play for West Ham or Freiburg.

The article clarifies that Jashari is in negotiations with Villarreal, the German team, and David Moyes’ team.

In 2020, the player joined the Swiss club’s first team after graduating from their youth program. Stefan Wolf, the president of Luzern, has ruled out a transfer for him in January; his present contract expires in 2026.

“We don’t have to sell Ardon,” he responded when Nau.ch inquired about whether the club’s finances would improve if Jashari was sold. Furthermore, nothing is on my table; a transfer requires the consent of three parties at all times. Since we have athletic goals, we would like to work with Ardon Jashari until the end of the season.
