Pochetinno poses with Mohammed Kudus

After Sunday's game, Chelsea's manager, Mauricio Pochetino, was spotted interacting with Mohammed Kudus.

A photo of the coach and the Ghanaian player was shared online, sparking a trending conversation about Mohammed Kudus' likelihood of moving to Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old player's stocks have skyrocketed, attracting interest from top teams, including English top-flight Liverpool.

Reports indicate that Mohammed Kudus may only leave West Ham after July 2025, thus only if the Ghanaian star has a release clause with the club.

"At the moment, I don’t see Kudus to Chelsea happening. Not because he wouldn’t fit but because of what the club has done in recent times," sports analyst Lawrence Degraft Baidoo established in an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh.
"They pose host of players with his profile in the team and adding to him would be more or less like having too many fits for the same role. I don’t think it’s any concrete at this point considering the impact of a similar profile like Palmer," he added.
