According to Barnes, Kudus can play at the highest level in Europe, just like Abedi did in the late '80s and early '90s.

“I played against Abedi Pele when I was at Liverpool in 1987, when Abedi Pele was on trial at Bayern Munich. Of course we remember him at Marseille, but he had been going around Europe at different clubs and he had that potential,” he said, as quoted by Citi Sports.
“And of course from him you see so many Ghanaian players, so nothing has really changed apart from players now move sooner, much sooner than they possibly are ready to move, but he (Kudus) definitely has the potential to play as high a level as any of the other Ghanaian players,” he added.

Kudus ended the 2022/23 season as one of Ajax's best players, scoring eighteen goals and providing seven assists across all competitions, as reported by Transfermarkt.
