Ajax football director, Sven Mislintat has said the club is yet to receive an official offer for Mohammed Kudus following interests from the transfer market.

The Ghana international has been linked to Manchester United, Newcastle United, Arsenal, and Liverpool this summer following his superb performance for club and country.

The 23-year-old according to reports have rejected a one-year contract extension stating his will to find another club.

However, Mislintat says though he is aware of the interest, there has been nothing concrete on their table as they look for replacements.

"Lorenzo Lucca is leaving, there is no alternative for Jurriën Timber. Each position must be occupied twice, so we are short in numbers. And then it depends on the market who stays. It is clear which players are most attractive to top international clubs. I’m thinking of a trio: Mohammed Kudus, Edson Álvarez, and Timber", he said to Voetbal-International.

"It just depends on the market what will happen. I know of interest from clubs, but there are no offers yet. So there is nothing concrete. There are talks, but we have to wait and see what will happen. I can tell you that the budget we have to spend is excellent. I am very happy with that," concludes Mislintat.

Kudus has scored 22 goals with five assists in all competitions this season. He has been named in Ghana's squad for the matchday five games of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Madagascar later this month.
