£34k-a-week star could ‘make up for Son’ at Hotspur Way

Tottenham Hotspur could ‘solve a couple of issues’ with the acquisition of Arnaut Danjuma this January, journalist Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport.

Spurs appear to have snatched the 25-year-old from under Everton’s noses as he looks to seal a temporary switch away from Villarreal in the winter transfer window.

Tottenham transfer news – Arnaut Danjuma

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano previously revealed that Everton had reached a ‘full agreement’ with the Yellow Submarine for Danjuma.

The Toffees looked set to snap up the Netherlands international away on a short-term loan deal that didn’t include the option to make his stay permanent, although he has now performed a remarkable U-turn.

Romano has now stated that despite Danjuma, who earns £34,000-per-week, undergoing a medical with Everton over the weekend, he now appears to be heading to Tottenham.

It’s believed that the versatile attacker is heading to London after Spurs offered a loan deal and although discussing including an option to buy him in the negotiations.

Danjuma was also linked to fellow Premier League sides Aston Villa and Bournemouth earlier in the month, but it seems as though Antonio Conte’s charges have now won the race for his signature.

What has Dean Jones said about Danjuma?

Jones has told GMS that he believes Danjuma could pick up the slack for Son Heung-Min, who has been hugely underwhelming this season, should he arrive at Hotspur Way.

He said: “This season is already like an Everton horror story and this Danjuma twist is another dagger for the fans.

“From a Spurs point of view, this helps solve a couple of issues, he’d bring a different goal threat and also help make up for the fact Son is so heavily underperforming. An easy loan would suit them under the current set up too.”

Would Danjuma be a good signing?

Danjuma played a pivotal part as Bournemouth earned promotion back to the Premier League in 2021/22, bagging 17 goals and seven assists in 35 Championship appearances before elevating his game to new heights last term.

The left-winger, who can also play upfront, registered 16 goals and four assists in 34 outings for Villarreal as they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Injuries have restricted Danjuma’s game time in the current campaign, but he has still found the back of the net on six occasions in his 17 games throughout 2022/23.

Danjuma, therefore, could be a very solid addition to Tottenham’s forward line for the second half of the season as they look to work their way into the top four.
