Viral photo of Kudus and Pochettino sparks rumours of Chelsea move

The 23-year-old was seen talking to the Chelsea manager in the aftermath of West Ham United’s Premier League defeat to the Blues last Sunday.

Kudus was a rare shining light despite Hammers suffering a humiliating 5-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The former Ajax star played the full 90 minutes but was powerless to stop Chelsea's sharp attack from causing damage at the other end.

The Blues completely dominated the game, with goals from Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Noni Madueke being added to by a double from Nicolas Jackson.

While West Ham endured a miserable afternoon at Stamford Bridge, Kudus was a class above the rest and was a threat any time he had the ball.

The Ghana international put up a masterclass on the flanks and completed an incredible 13 take-ons (dribbles) against Chelsea.

This saw him become the first player to complete 13 take-ons in a single Premier League game this season.
