Tottenham Hotspur appear to be fairly close to signing Arnaut Danjuma.
Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his social media on the 25th (Korean time), “Danzuma just signed a contract to become a new Tottenham player. An official announcement will be made soon.” ‘s comment ‘Here We Go’ was added.
Born in 1997, Danjuma is a Nigerian-Dutch player who made his professional debut in 2015. He entered the English stage by joining Bournemouth after PSV Eindhoven 스포츠토토 and Club Bruges (Belgium). Since last season, he has been playing for Villarreal in Spanish La Liga.
Danjuma, who can play not only as a forward striker but also in all areas of the second line, showed off his presence by scoring 10 goals and 3 assists in 23 La Liga matches (17 starts, 6 substitutes) in his first season. But this season, Gerard Moreno and Nicholas Jackson are getting more chances. Danjuma has scored 2 goals in 10 league games (6 starts, 4 substitutes) so far.
The team that originally wanted Danjuma was Everton. Everton was suffering from a void after sending ‘Ace’ Richarlison to Tottenham last summer. There are many games where you can’t score and you can’t accumulate points, and you are currently in 19th place in the relegation zone of the English Premier League (EPL). Coach Frank Lampard was sacked due to poor performance.
However, Tottenham participated in the scouting battle, and has emerged as the most influential team at present. Tottenham also needs to strengthen their attack. In addition to Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura, Richarlison was newly added, but the strikers suffered from line injuries throughout the first half. If Danjuma is recruited, this is expected to be resolved.
