Tottenham hijack Everton deal for Arnaut Danjuma amid managerial uncertainty

Tottenham Hotspur have taken advantage of the managerial uncertainty at Everton to secure a deal for Arnaut Danjuma, according to The Athletic.

Spurs have reportedly agreed a loan move with Villarreal for Danjuma ahead of their Premier League rivals.

Everton were closing in on the former Bournemouth attacker, but sacking manager Frank Lampard changed the landscape.

The Toffees have sounded out former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa about the role, but he has doubts about replacing Lampard due to the make-up of the squad.

With Everton focusing on finding a new permanent manager, transfer negotiations with Danjuma stalled.

Danjuma is a sleek attacker that loves to cut in from the left wing. The 25-year-old can also fill in as a striker if required.

The PSV Eindhoven academy graduate scored ten La Liga goals and assisted three more last season.

He was also impressive in the Champions League, scoring six goals and assisting one in 11 appearances to help his side reach the semi-finals under Unai Emery.

Injuries have decimated Danjuma’s game time this term. He has made only ten appearances (six starts), scoring two goals in the league. He has scored twice in the Europa Conference League and the Copa del Rey.

Danjuma will provide competition for Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son at Tottenham.

Manager Antonio Conte is looking to bolster his side after recent poor performances, and Danjuma would be a welcome addition to the ranks.
