Former Ajax Amsterdam scout, John Steen Olsen has likened new signing Mohammed Kudus' style of play to that of Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf.
The Dutch giants completed a five-year deal for Kudus from Danish Superliga side FC Nordsjaelland where he rose to the occasion in every match.
“One of the greatest talents in Denmark. It is a boy with so much quality”, Olsen told De Telegraaf.
“Technically very good, and very fast. I have often seen him at work with Henk Veldmate (chief scout of Ajax). He is also very enthusiastic.”
“Kudus can play in all positions in midfield anyway, but in the front, he can also play in the striker or on the right.
"That makes him so interesting. He looks a bit like a young Clarence Seedorf, although I don't like comparing players with other players. Kudus is ultimately just Kudus,” he added.
Kudus made 28 appearances across all competitions, registering 12 goals and one assist in the process for FC Nordsjaelland.
Kudus will make his training debut on Tuesday.
