  • Mohammed Kudus has been compared to a Manchester City star
  • A former West Ham midfielder sees similarities between the two
  • Both players arrived in England in the summer transfer window

Former West Ham United midfielder, Nigel Reo-Coker insists Ghanaian midfielder, Mohammed Kudus can be as important for the Hammers as Jeremy Doku has been for Manchester City.

Kudus has been in fine form for the London club since joining them in the summer transfer window, scoring an outstanding goal as West Ham dumped Arsenal out of the Carabao Cup.

The 23-year-old also netted a brace in the UEFA Europa League game against Serbian side, TSC Backa Topola before scoring his first Premier League goal against Newcastle United.

Despite his form, he is yet to become a regular starter for David Moyes' men.

Reo-Coker thinks the Ghanaian international could be more useful to West Ham as a winger than a forward, per BBC Radio 5 Live and as quoted by Ghanasoccernet:

"I think Kudus can have the same impact as Doku does for Manchester City. Paqueta should be your middle man - he’s the guy that can orchestrate everything.
"I think playing Kudus in the middle is something for me you can kind of question. He needs to be out wide, high, one-on-one against defenders and then producing his magic up there."

Kudus joined West Ham from Dutch Eredivisie side, Ajax Amsterdam on a long-term deal, per whufc.com.

Meanwhile, Reo-Coke is revered at the Hammers after making 120 appearances for the club in his three-year stay between 2004 to 2007.

He also played for Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers in the Premier League.

Kudus leaves Tomiyasu lost with cheeky skills

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Kudus outwitting Arsenal's Takehiro Tomiyasu as West Ham knocked their London rivals out of the Carabao Cup last week.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian was on target as the Hammers secured a 3-1 victory at the Olympic Stadium, leaving the Gunners out of yet another trophy race.

An own goal from Ben White and a strike from Jarrod Bowen sandwiched Kudus' brilliant goal, with Arsenal earning a consolation goal via Martin Odegaard.
