West Ham United are working hard to finalise agreements with Ajax and Stuttgart for Mohammed Kudus and Konstantinos Mavropanos respectively, sources have confirmed to 90min.

New Hammers technical director Tim Steidten is currently in Amsterdam where he is holding face-to-face talks with Ajax counterparts over a proposed deal for Kudus.

The Ghanaian attacker, who shunned a move to Brighton earlier this month, is believed to be open to the prospect of moving to the London Stadium and personal terms are all but agreed as talks have been ongoing for the last week - as 90min already revealed.

However, talks between the clubs are ongoing. West Ham are understood to have opened talks around the €35m (£29.9m) mark. That won't be enough to get the deal done, with Ajax currently believing that a realistic fee is €47m (£40m), although the negotiations continue.



Steidten and the Hammers want to get the Kudus deal tied up as they are aware he is still on the radar of the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.

Steidten has also been overseeing the propsoed move for defender Mavropanos. West Ham launched their efforts to land the Greek international after a bid for Harry Maguire faltered.

Former Arsenal man Mavropanos is eager to move back to the Premier League and personal terms are not seen as an issue. Stuttgart - who are in need of sales due to financial concerns - are looking to bring in €25m (£21.3m) for the 25-year-old and West Ham are close to finalising a deal.
