Back in June, Danjuma told Dutch outlet Voetbal International that Leeds were a “bigger institution than Bournemouth” and joining them would be a “nice step” in his career.
The 24-year-old Dutchman really impressed in the Championship last season. He scored 17 goals, provided seven assists and recorded an average of 1.8 dribbles per game (per WhoScored).
Would you pay £35m for Danjuma?
Could Danjuma be a good addition then for Leeds? Based on that, perhaps. But with a report from the print edition of The Sun (via the Mirror) claiming that Bournemouth have slapped a whopping £35m price tag on the player’s head, it is a deal Wainman cannot see happening.
“For £35m, not a chance,” Wainman said in a chat with TT. “I think if Bournemouth are holding out for that, then they’re going to be holding out for a long time because Leeds United probably won’t pay £35m for a player in this window and definitely not for Danjuma.”
Indeed, it is one that is hard to imagine happening. £35m for a player in English football’s second tier, who did not make much of an impact during his last stint in the top flight, is madness really.
He did have his injury problems that season, but whatever the case, Danjuma does not look like a £35m player yet.
