Report: Liverpool keeping close eye on 'special' player at the World Cup, he'll take on Ronaldo tomorrow

Liverpool are sending scouts to Ghana’s World Cup game tomorrow with the remit of watching Mohammed Kudus.

The Black Stars are set to take on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal on Thursday afternoon. And according to Sports World Ghana, Liverpool talent spotters will be there to watch Kudus.

In fact, the Reds are said to have been watching the Ajax man for a little while. Most Liverpool fans will remember his cracker at the Kop end against them in September’s Champions League game. It was a heck of a strike.

Well, it seems as though Jurgen Klopp thought so too. It’s claimed that the Liverpool boss instructed his scouts to keep an eye on Kudus ever since the goal.

Impressed by what they’ve seen from the 22-year-old, the Reds will reportedly try to bring him to Anfield in January.

Kudus ready for the world stage

Kudus had already looked to be on his way to Merseyside last summer. At that time, the Ghana forward was very heavily linked with a move to Everton.

That never happened in the end. And after his stunning start to this season’s Champions League, it looks as though the Toffees have now lost out once and for all.

Instead, Kudus looks ready to make a slightly larger step up the footballing food chain.

Whether that’s at Liverpool or not, perhaps we need to see a little more to decide. A good World Cup will do him a lot of good in that regard.

That won’t be easy for Kudus, or for Ghana. As well as needing to get a result against Portugal, they’ll take on Darwin Nunez’s Uruguay as well as South Korea.

Should the young forward make an impact in a group as strong as that, he’ll be well worth taking a further look at.

With nine goals already this season, he’s shown himself to be a talent worth tracking. His performance on the world stage could help Liverpool decide if their monitoring should be taken any further.
